Collegiate Advisory Group

Supporting Collegiate Tiako

The Collegiate Taiko Advisory Group (CTAG) regularly provides support for collegiate groups who host the Intercollegiate Taiko Invitational (ITI) on the West Coast and the East Coast Taiko Conference (ECTC). CTAG members are available for regular meetings to share best practices for event planning, provide suggestions for working with their campus resources, advise on taiko community resources, and serve as liaison with taiko instructors. CTAG shares useful documents compiled from previous gatherings, including a master timeline, budgeting templates, and sample Letters of Agreement for students to use in their event planning.
