Karl King Award Winners Announced

The IBA Board of Directors had an ongoing discussion regarding the announcing of the Karl King Active and Retired recipients at the same time as the President Elect results are announced.  This new procedure will start next year.

In an effort to honor the spirit of that decision right away, we are pleased to announce this year’s Karl King recipients are:

David Law – Karl King Retired

David Lang – Karl King Active

Mr. Law and Mr. Lang will be recognized at the IBA Banquet on May 11, 2018.  Banquet tickets are available at the registration booth until Friday morning, May 11, 2018.

Please join us in congratulating Mr. Law and Mr. Lang for their tireless efforts promoting excellence in bands.
