Dear 30 Year Tenure Director,

Congratulations on reaching a milestone as a professional educator. The Iowa Bandmasters Association would like to acknowledge and honor you for your 30 years of dedication at our IBA Conference Banquet at the Des Moines Marriott Downtown Hotel on May 10, 2019.

The criteria guidelines are:
- have achieved 30 years of service to the students of Iowa schools.
- service need not be consecutive
- may include any combination of elementary, middle school, junior high, high school, or college.

Awardees will be recognized and presented with a plaque at the annual Iowa Bandmasters Association conference. Presentation of the award may take place at the annual IBA banquet.(2007,2011, Resolution reviewed).

Please fill out the information form below. The information that will be read for 30 year honorees will be shorter than that of retirees. There must be a time constraint to allow for the banquet to be finished before the concert that follows at 8:00 pm. When you retire, a full length biography will be allowed and enjoyed!
