You and the International Bluegrass Music Association

Rienk Janssen, IBMA International board member, sends this message to all IBMA members from outside the USA, and will also be happy to receive input from anybody who is interested in how things develop in the bluegrass world - not just IBMA members:

We hope to see many of you before long in Nashville. But this is also for those who can not join us!

On Tuesday 28 September at 1.30 p.m. we will have a special meeting for all non-US attendees. To be better prepared, I would like all of you to give short answers to a few questions below.

Please send back to me on 22 September at the latest, as I will leave home on the 24th.

1) Are you planning to come to IBMA's World of Bluegrass (27 Sept.-3 Oct.) this year? yes / no

2) If not, what is the reason?
O lack of time
O the money
O no interest
O other:

3) Are you a:
O professional member
O grass roots member

4) What do you expect from your IBMA membership?

5) What can the IBMA and/or the bluegrass community expect from you?

6) Do you have questions, ideas, or suggestions for the IBMA and its International Committee?

7) Anything else you would like us to know?
