2019 DCI Annual Meeting

January 11th and 12th Motor City Optimists Drum & Bugle Corps participated in Drum Corps International’s Annual Meeting in Indianapolis, Indiana. Following the SoundSport track, there were discussions about the benefits of the SoundSport program, promotions, recruiting, show design and adjudication, and health and wellness. A lot of great information was passed along, some of which we will try to share here in the coming weeks.
