The AGM of The Association of Brass Band Adjudicators took place this weekend in Manchester, with the election of its Executive Committee for 2023.
The AGM saw the re-election of Sheona Wade as Chair, with an Executive Committee made up of Dr. Brett Baker (Vice Chair); Nicholas Garman (Secretary); Chris King (Treasurer); Christopher Bond (PRO); Martin Heartfield (Trainee Programme Leader) and Dr. Robert Childs, Helen Douthwaite-Teasdale, Stan Lippeatt and John Ward (Executive Members).
Presentations were given by Dr. Brett Baker and Martin Heartfield on the development of the organisation’s new website and handbook, with Chris King providing training on march and hymn tune adjudication. Honorary member, Derek Broadbent, delighted everyone with his ‘experiences’ of a career of judging.
AoBBA would like to pay tribute and say thank you to Mark Wilkinson & Sarah Groake-Booth, who both step down from the Executive Committee after contributing so brilliantly.
