Summary of activities

For over 120 years, the Band Association of New South Wales has provided support to community bands in the state, coordination of state and national contests and championships, and advocacy and liaison with government. In 2020, the Association continued to deliver its two (2) annual championship events (though held online, due to COVID-19), while maintaining representation for bands in discussions with NSW Health and Create NSW in clarifying guidelines around gatherings as applicable to the community band setting. In addition, the Association delivered another year of its Community Band Development Grants, a devolved funding program supported by Create NSW. The year also saw preparations commence for the Australian National Online Festival Of Bands (ANOFOB), an online national championship event held in April 2021.
