Welcome to the tutorial for creating an IBA website user account, verifying your membership information, or registering for the annual IBA Conference.
Before you begin...
PLEASE check your IBA print materials (Paper Directory, address label or recent magazine) for your member id number. You should use this number to connect your paid membership correctly.
This number does not change! If you have changed schools you still have the same member ID number. If you were a student member you will keep the same member ID number.
Your email will no longer be allowed for username, ONLY your member ID number will be recognized.
Our website has the following features for our members:
- Website User Account – allows access to your membership registration/information, and IBA Conference registration. A user account is also required to submit news articles, view committee work, receive online voting information and view the member directory.
- Member Registration – allows access to your membership information and payment options. Enables payment current or next year’s dues with a credit card.
- Conference Registration – replaces the paper "Conference Pre-Registration" form. Pay online with credit card only. You can still mail in a printed copy of this online form OR pre-registration form from magazine (Winter edition) with a check or school purchase before April 15th.
* Pre-Registration Notice
Please note that all payments by check (with paper form) must be received by the April 15th. This is the IBA Conference Pre-Registration deadline for you to be considered as "pre-registered". If you register using a school purchase order (with paper form), you will not be pre-registered for the IBA Conference until payment is received. It is your responsibility to submit the registration form invoice to your business office for payment. Online registration is open from February 15th to April 15th.

Important Notice - Current and Previous Members
If you are a current/existing IBA member, you must login using your member ID # listed in the IBA Directory OR printed on IBA correspondence and the Bandmasters magazine in order for your account to link up correctly to your existing membership. If you have been a member previously (not current) you probably still have a member number.
A blank form will not allow you to register for the IBA Conference because it is not linked to the database containing your membership information. Blank forms are for new members only. If you know you are a member... STOP and find your member number. You should not have to pay your dues again IF you are a current member.
