The 2014 State of the CMBAA

Welcome to college football season! That means Fall is just around the corner, and so is Homecomings!

As we get closer to our Annual Meeting, you might find yourself asking, “What on earth has the CMBAA been up to in 2014?” If that’s the case, then do we have a treat for you! Please find attached a copy of this year’s State of the CMBAA newsletter. In this publication, you’ll find updates on the directors and work over the past year, important Association news, and upcoming events. Be sure to check out our Treasurer’s message to get a better idea of what it costs the CMBAA to operate on an annual basis and learn more about how the Board is positioning the Association to address long-term fiscal solvency.

As always, if you have questions or would like to get involved with the CMBAA, please email Josh Richards (chair@uvacmbaa.org).

Giving Back Thursday

My favorite Cavalier Marching Band memory: High-stepping for the first time out onto a college football field, September 11th, 2004, to a perform for a crowd of 65000 fans, who hadn’t seen a true marching band at UVA in over forty years.

To the organization that has given us so much, now it’s our turn to give back.

Join the Cavalier Marching Band Alumni Association Board and celebrate the 1st Annual Give Back Thursday by making a gift to the CMB. Your support will help ensure future generations of marchers get just as much out of their experiences as we did.

Make a gift to the Cavalier Marching Band. I did.
