Bob Wall has resigned as executive director of the Madison Drum & Bugle Corps Association, effective October 24.
During his year with the organization, Wall led the MDBCA through a remarkable transition. The Madison Scouts returned to a position among drum corps’ elite by placing eighth at the Drum Corps International World Championships in Orlando, FL. Capital Sound also advanced to the division II finals for the first time, finishing eighth in their division. Southwind had a solid rebuilding year after a change in leadership and staff.
Wall’s accomplishments reach beyond the competitive field. He made many friends and positive contacts within the activity and in the Madison community. His gregarious personality and charm established, and reestablished, relationships and friendships that should last a lifetime.
The board of directors has not yet established a plan for replacing Wall. It is possible that an interim executive director will be named at a later date.
