The Pipe Majors' Club (of Scandinavia)
The Pipe Majors' Club is a club for Scandinavian pipe-majors. The requirement to be eligible as a member is to have led a Scandinavian pipe band competing in the Scandinavian Pipe Band Championships. Alternatively, it is possible to be considered as a member if one has provided other services to the piping community.
The club was reformed in 2006 from The Former Pipe Majors' Club, where only former pipe-majors were allowed as members.
The annual general meeting of the club is held every year in the autumn. At this meeting the highest executive of the club is elected – the senior pipe-major.
Latest news concerning Annual Meeting 6 October, 2012:
