LEADERSHIP ACADEMY

The District will hold three Leadership Academies in 2018. Leadership Academies (LA) provide education and training for key chapter officer positions in six tracks:
  • President/EVP
  • Secretary
  • Treasurer
  • Music & Performance
  • Chapter Development/ Membership
  • Marketing & Public Relations
All new and old chapter officers are invited and encouraged to attend. Incoming officers and directors can all benefit from attendance at one of the District's LAs where you will learn all about your new positions, make important contacts with your peers from chapters across the District, and connect with instructors who can mentor you throughout the year. You will gain the knowledge and skills ("tricks of the trade") you need to carry out your duties and responsibilities in an efficient and effective manner.

Feedback from previous attendees indicates that even "old dogs" (guys who are repeating in office for the umpteenth time) learn something new from the instructor or other class members. With the Society's increased emphasis on the Healthy Chapter initiative and our new vision, Everyone in Harmony, even experienced officers will benefit from our knowledgeable faculty.

So, don't miss out on the opportunity to learn something that will make your life easier and more fun in 2018.

As in the past, group pricing is available up to 2 weeks before the Academy you'll be attending. Bring all your chapter officers and learn together! It's great team-building.

Youth In Harmony Outreach Guidelines

Many of our chapters, quartets and choruses are eager to engage music educators to get involved in a barbershop outreach program at their local schools. This is a good thing! That said, it's critical to the success of our outreach efforts that we always leave the music educator with the best possible impression of the barbershop art form and how it can enhance/augment the teacher's music education program.

CHAPTER DUES CHANGES NOTICE

Dear Chapter Presidents, Secretaries, and Treasurers,

IF YOU WANT TO CHANGE YOUR DUES FOR 2018

Changes in dues prices for chapters for 2018 must be updated in the BHS Member Center before NOVEMBER 1st
(more than 60 days in advance as has always been our practice).
If your chapter or district does not wish to change your dues prices, there is nothing else you need to do.
As a general reminder, it is not necessary to contact Society Headquarters to change your dues (Chapter or District) prices.

Here is a detailed message about the dues changes.

We will be running invoices for January in November and the amounts must be in the system prior to running the invoices. Attempted changes with a start date within 60 days will not be accepted by the computer system.





The MAD Marketing Team has created a Marketing Toolbox for Chapters & Quartets to use to promote your group.



MAD Chorus Plateau Definitions

Chorus plateau categories are based on the average percentile results
from the two previous contests in which the chorus was entered.

AAAA70% and above
AAA60 - 69.9%
AA55 - 59.9%
A54.9% and below.

First-time competitors will not be eligible for plateau awards,
but their initial contest score can be used to place them in their next contest.
A chorus that has not competed in any contest for more than four years
will reenter the contest cycle as a Plateau A chorus.
