Community Bands (Adult Bands) have served and entertained thousands of people for over 100 years, and they exist in almost every corner of the world. At one time, the NBA promoted and hosted a national community band event every two years. Since that time, the Association of Concert Bands (ACB) has moved to the forefront of this activity. The NBA fully supports the Association of Concert Bands, which includes bands, adult musicians, conductors, composers, and corporations. This organization stands ready to serve the needs of musicians who perform in and/or lead adult concert, community, and municipal bands. The ACB provides benefits and services for its member bands, along with opportunities for individual adult musicians and conductors to socialize, perform, and interact with one another. The ACB publishes a magazine, The ACB Journal, and sponsors an annual convention to share ideas on networking, building audiences, fundraising, promotion and publicity, and much more.
