Throughout its history, Northshore Concert Band has been widely regarded as a leader in the development of community bands across the nation. In addition to performances, recordings, and the sponsorship of three adult band conferences, NCB also published a comprehensive how-to guide called The Community Band: A Manual of Organization and Operation, which has been used to start or improve many community bands in the United States since 1982.

In 2003, the Northshore Concert Band presented a clinic session at the Midwest Clinic entitled “The Successful Community Band: Strategies On and Off the Podium.” Attendees received a CD containing over 150 pages of resources and sample documents pertaining to the administration of adult bands. Included are the band’s constitution and by-laws, personnel policies, sample grant proposals and fundraising letters, marketing materials, an extensive audience development plan, incorporation and tax information, volunteer structure, and the contents of NCB’s Manual of Organization and Operation.
