And then there’s BUMS Online …

From BUMS on seats to BUMS online … our busy BUMS community leaders showed amazing resilience, creativity and community spirit during the 2020 pandemic. They created a private Facebook group exclusively for BUMS Inc members. The BUMS Online Facebook group provides members with a platform to participate in discussions and share performances, reviews, and tutorials, and join our online jams.

To be a member of BUMS Online, you must be a BUMS Inc Financial Member, or an Associate Member who is over 14 years of age.
