* Viable member is defined as "a student registered for college credit in the college's parent ensemble." Students do not have to be full-time college students to participate in TCCBDA activities.

The Texas Community College Band Directors Association reserves the right to deny participation in the all-state ensembles to students from institutions which fail to provide qualified personnel to assist with the seating audition procedure at the convention site in San Antonio. Furthermore, students housed at the convention must have a sponsoring director housed at the same hotel.
