Leadership Bluegrass Application

Leadership Bluegrass March 5-7, 2018, Nashville, TN

The form below may be completed by either the person interested in being a class participant, or by someone recommending an individual for consideration.  Please fill out the form as completely as possible, attaching additional info as needed or indicated.

Special Note:  The selection process for Leadership Bluegrass is competitive, with more applicants than there are positions available.  While your application or recommendation does not guarantee a position in the class, IBMA does guarantee that everyone who applies will be given an equal opportunity.  Many Leadership Bluegrass alumni applied multiple times before being accepted. All parts of the application weigh heavily in the selection process, especially the required writing. Incomplete applications are likely to be rejected. 

SUBMIT BY OCTOBER 31, 2017.  A participant fee of $300/IBMA Members or $375/non-members (class fee plus IBMA membership) is payable to IBMA after you have been invited to attend.  For info on partial scholarships based on financial need or travel expense, call 888-GET-IBMA or 615-256-3222. 

YOU MAY APPLY BY FILLING OUT THE ONLINE FORM BELOW.  We strongly prefer online applications for the sake of making the submissions process more efficient. If you would prefer to submit a paper application - which will not influence in any way how your submission is evaluated -  you may download and print an application by following this link: Leadership Bluegrass 2018.
