Enthusiastic about the IHS? Want to make a difference in the Society’s activities?

You can help the IHS by becoming an IHS Area Representative.

The IHS invites applications for open Area Representative positions. Area Representatives serve the IHS by communicating society activities to IHS members in their state, province, or country, as well as sharing information about horn activities in their areas with the society worldwide.  Area Reps also assist in recruiting and welcoming new IHS members and in communication between members in their area. We are especially interested in hearing from people in regions or countries where we have not had Reps before.

10/19/08: Registration is now open for the 2009 International Horn Symposium. The form and cost information are available at www.wiu.edu/horn under the IHS2009 sidebar. This information could be quite useful for teachers who are applying for funding to take ensembles (or themselves) to IHS 2009.  One item we have available with Early Registration is the capability of purchasing Sodexo MEAL CARDS for the Food Court at the University Union.  Some students might not want to go back to the residence halls for lunch--and prefer to eat lunch at the food court--go visit a nearby exhibit or practice --before going to  an event at 1:00.  So meals plans can be purchased for either breakfast, lunch, and or dinner.  Also, the BANQUET Registrations must be made early.  There will be a limit for the first 600 Registrants for the Symposium Banquet.
