ELFA 61st Annual Convention
Welcoming Change as Opportunity

Community Service Projects

ELFA Gives Back: Our thoughts go out to everyone who has been impacted by Hurricane Ian and in the ELFA tradition of giving back, a portion of every convention registration will be donated to storm relief. In addition, we are exploring opportunities for a community service project in support of those impacted by the storm.


Sunday, October 9

2:00 – 4:00 p.m.

Playing music can have a very positive effect on young people. High-quality instruments are needed by students in schools and by local organizations. Build-a-Guitar® was created and trademarked to serve this need. These guitar kits were specifically designed to provide a unique and exciting community service project. During assembly, periodic inspections will ensure the guitars are built to precise specifications. In addition, teams will design and decorate a special white guitar box to reflect the unique personality of their Band. Our Build-a-Guitar® kits also include a tuner, audio cable, the guitar strap, picks, and even a personal amplifier! At the conclusion of the program, a local charity or school representative will address the group and thank you for your donation.
