About UMBAO

The University of Maryland Band Alumni Organization is the official alumni association of the band program. We are completely self-run and have hundreds of active members. UMBAO is in charge of contacting alumni for events, organizing homecoming (both alumni band and tailgate picnic), forming alumni basketball pep bands, and financially helping the band department.

If you — or anyone you know — is interested in running for an office, please read the descriptions below. Any questions you have may be directed to Marianne Kassabian.
