Area 2 Director

Julie Schwingbeck

I’m happy to be joining the IBOD and look forward to serving the organization at this exciting time with our Harmony Stronger initiatives. I have been a member of HI for 30 years and am a charter member of Women of Note (1990). During my Women of Note membership, I have held several administrative and musical leadership positions – President, Vice President, Member-at-large, Section Leader, Music Team Chair, etc. I am currently in my seventh term as president (not consecutive!).

I come to the Area 2 director position having served as newsletter editor, PR chair, and development chair for the Area in the past. I am enjoying singing with my new quartet, Off the Record.

In my non-barbershop life, my husband and I are newly empty nesters, as my daughter, Carlyn, left for college in September. I volunteer with the local Girl Scout Council, direct the children’s choir (grades 2-5) at my church, and serve on the welcoming committee, tasked with creating a welcoming environment for members of the LGBTQ+ community, also at my church.
