Some bands choose to "employ" a different conductor for a contest. That conductor may have their own band in another section or region. Is this a good thing? Should bands be allowed to use a conductor who has conducted a band (in the same year) in a (often much) higher section, or should conductors be subject to the "only appearing once" in the regionals like players and have the same restrictions as players? Neil. [Edit] Since I don't seem to be able to edit the poll question to make it clearer, please take it that I meant: "Should conductors be permitted to conduct multiple bands in the same contest (series)?"
