Hello! I would like to begin by introducing myself for those of you who may not know me yet. My name is Libby Brennan and I am currently serving as the President of the CTBA.
With the new year come new conversations, new ideas and new momentum. The 2020 CTBA Board of Directors is just one month old and we are making good progress.
This year will be one of growth as we hope not only to expand our members’ opportunities to pick and connect but also grow our membership. If you haven’t already, check out the calendars on the new CTBA website. There you will find separate calendars for ”Upcoming Events” and “Upcoming Jams.” “Upcoming Events” are paid performance events that are open to the public. “Upcoming Jams” are just that – jams – and anyone that wants to come and jam is welcome. Keep your eyes open for more opportunities to enjoy bluegrass and pick this year!
The Board is currently creating new membership benefit packages to reflect the needs of our members and to show our appreciation for your ongoing support of the Central Texas Bluegrass Association. CTBA Board Members will be present at more events around the state this year, so please stop by and say hello.
Speaking of events, I'm happy to announce that the Band Scramble and Garage Sale are back by popular demand. Mark your calendars for June 28th. More details to come.
Along with growth, another goal of the CTBA Board is communication. This year marks the return of our highly sought-after newsletter! You should see your first newsletter by mid-March, and then every couple of months thereafter. An e-blast like this one will be the interim means of communicating any important news and key dates.
Please know that we are listening to you, our members, as your feedback is important to how we continue to move and grow. My inbox is always open at email@example.com.
If you are currently not a member, we invite you to join online at CentralTexasBluegrass.org/Join.
Keep Texas Grassy.
