Just received the below email from NACWPI President Patrick G. Smith on this fall’s 2013 NACWPI Conference.
Good afternoon! I hope this email finds you well as you enjoy what I hope will be a relaxing summer after a busy 2012-2013 academic year! I write to share with you some important and exciting news regarding the 2013 NACWPI Conference which will be held at Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, VA, October 18-19, 2013. This will be a terrific event featuring performances, clinics, and pedagogical presentations. One of the highlights of the conference will be a performance by the U.S Army Training and Doctrine Command Band (TRADOC). Their performance on Saturday evening October 19 will be full of excitement and energy and may very well contain a few surprises for all of us!
As you probably noticed in the NACWPI Journal that came out just a few weeks ago, the deadline to submit proposals for conference inclusion was slated for yesterday, May 15. Due to unforeseen circumstances, the journal was much later in coming out that was initially anticipated, leaving NACWPI members with just two weeks to submit proposals instead of the eight weeks we had desired. As some of you have communicated a desire to me and the NACWPI board for an extension, and to encourage all members an equal and fair opportunity to submit proposals, the board announces the following:
NACWPI 2013 Conference Proposal – EXTENDED DEADLINE
– The NACWPI board will continue to accept applications for conference performances/presentations/clinics until 12:01am on July 1, 2013 through the same process described and outlined on the organization website: www.nacwpi.org and in the Spring 2013 NACWPI journal.
Notifications will be sent to accepted presenters, performers, and clinicians by August 1, 2013.
As always, please feel free to contact me with any concerns or questions. We look forward to seeing you in Richmond this fall!
Have a great summer!
