Spring Meeting

This meeting is for all instrumental music directors in Region 3 of the Arkansas School Band And Orchestra Association. The meeting is designed for reflection of our yearly cycle of music education instruction. Once our celebrations and concerns are voiced we develop a plan to provide the finest music education possible for our students. Dates, locations, clinicians, officers, and recommendations to the state level of ASBOA are developed and adopted.

ABA Meeting

The Arkansas Bandmasters Convention provides facilities for our region to meet to revisit any concerns or summer board proposals that may have developed over the summer break. This is also a wonderful opportunity to meet the new directors in Region 3.

All State Meeting

The Arkansas School Band And Orchestra Association Convention is held in Hot Springs each February in conjunction with the student All-State Clinic. A meeting room and time is scheduled to review and prepare for our state level meeting.
