The Committee on College and University Music was so dominated by band directors in the mid-1930s that it soon became known as the Committee on College and University Bands. In the fall of 1938 that committee, under the leadership of William Revelli, met independently in Chicago. The group met again in December 1941 and formed the University and College Band Conductors Conference. The name of the organization was changed to the College Band Directors National Association in 1947)
