GBBA launch a new part of their website that gives GBBA member bands access to exclusive content not available on the public part of the site. GBBA ask that representatives from each GBBA brass band register as a member on the website to gain access to the content. Content includes access to committee/AGM/Forum minutes archive, newsletter archive, Brass Bands England BandSafe information and templates for safeguarding and other policy documents, score archive, funding opportunities (such as the GBBA Support Fund, coming soon!), and more.
What is the GBBA Support Fund?
GBBA are introducing a more streamlined way to apply for funding for brass band activities. The funding can only be applied for through the member area of the website, which includes online and offline application forms (depending on your preference). The funding applications are not yet live, but will be open soon. Watch this space! You can access this through the member area.
Am I eligible to register?
During the infancy of the member area of the website, GBBA ask that only one representative of each GBBA member band registers. However, more band members may be able to join at a later date, which will be announced via the website and on GBBA's social media channels. So keep your eyes peeled!
How do I register?
Click on the login icon at the top of the page.
This will take you to a login page where you can sign up. To do this, please enter your email address and a password of your choosing. Note: your email address must be the same as the one associated with your band on the GBBA website - go to the 'members' page to check. Once you have entered these details and clicked 'login', your member request will be submitted and will await approval from the GBBA Webmaster. Once approved, you will be notified via email.
What do I do when I have registered?
Once you have registered and been approved, there are multiple ways to log in. You can access the member area by clicking on the 'Member Area' tab on the main menu of the website and log in where prompted. Now you have full access to the member area. If you want to find out more about what GBBA and the member area can do for you and your band, please visit the 'About' page in the Member Area sub-menu. Explore the member area to see what is available to you. More information and benefits will be added over time so keep your eyes peeled for more content!
