ASBDA State Chapters are involved politically for the advocation of quality concert band programs in our nation's schools. Chapters work with community leaders and state legislators to promote the importance of music education to a student's artistic development.

Most recently, the Colorado Chapter worked closely with the Governor of Colorado to host a Colorado School Band Day. The event brought students from several Colorado Band programs to perform and led to a Gubernatorial Proclamation in support of school band programs which was signed by both houses of the state legislature.
