January Jubilee 2015

Has your chapter considered hosting a January Jubilee?? This is an education outreach of the AGO -- join the excitement. Here are the details: 

The Committee on Sharing Skills and Resources announces seven Jubilees to be held in 2016, with a $1,000 subsidy from National to each Jubilee. It is the goal of the committee to have one Jubilee from each of the seven regions. January Jubilees are for the purpose of nurturing musicians working for religious institutions, introducing those musicians unacquainted with the AGO to its work and mission and encouraging them to become members of the Guild. We hope you will consider this unique opportunity to reshape your chapter into a more accessible and welcoming image, to fill the gap between local chapter activities and conference level efforts, and to meet and interact with peers who share an interest in the King of Instruments.  February 1, 2015 is the deadline for submitting an application to host a 2016 Jubilee. The program is outlined in the JJ handbook available online at the American Guild of Organist website. You are welcome to contact Sheila (info below) if you have any questions.

Committee on Sharing Skills and Resources

Oh, yes, Sheila is from our very own Southeast Region. Thanks for your great work, Sheila!
