COVID-19 Information & Protocols

The GTBAA Executive Board is monitoring the progression and ever-changing state of the global pandemic. It should go without saying that the health and safety of our fellow alumni, family, friends, and the Georgia Tech community is the highest priority for the Board. As such, the program and scheduling is likely to remain fluid through registration opening and potentially after it closes and GT Band Alumni should expect that there may be some protocols to be followed in order to participate in the 2021 Alumni Band.

The Board will be working with the Georgia Tech Band directors and staff, the Georgia Tech Alumni Association, and any other organizations on campus as well as taking in account the current CDC guidance and recommendations to ensure our alumni are kept safe.
