The band boosters had a much better year this year than last, but we still did not operate with a full board. We need a number of parents to step up and help us run this program this year. We have a few committee positions that are still open/will be open and in need of a leader. We need to be able to fill these positions as quickly as possible in order to give us time to do knowledge transfer/training before we start planning for next year so we can be firmly grounded before the craziness of marching season begins.
Keep in mind these are leadership positions - many of these areas will need teams of people to support those that take on these leadership roles, and signups for team members can happen throughout the year.
Here are the open positions, and a brief description of what the job entails.
Committee Chair Positions - these positions are the various people we rely on to own various activities throughout the season and work closely with the board when their committees are required.
Fundraising Committee - we are looking to bolster the fundraising chair with a few individuals willing to help the fundraising chair plan and execute any of our various fundraising activities throughout the year. They would essentially be taking on one or two of our larger fundraising areas/events. The specific events we are looking for leaders on are:
Car Wash - This is a great community event. It happens on a Saturday morning in September. It involves working with the local business that hosts the car wash, getting parent volunteers, ensuring adequate car wash supplies, and purchasing food for lunch/sales.
Luminarias - This is a sale that runs alongside the poinsettia sales below. Coordination of sand delivery, parent volunteers, build day/distribution, and bags/candle purchases.
Again, we are looking for committed individuals willing to take on these leadership positions. We have plenty of expertise on hand to help train and show the ropes. The key is a teaming mentality, a willingness to serve, and foremost - a desire to make the band program a successful and enjoyable experience for the kids.
If you have any interest in any of these positions, or would like more information - please respond and let me know, and we can have a conversation. We are looking to fill these in the next few months so shadowing and knowledge transfer can occur before we get into the hustle and bustle of next season.
Thanks in advance for your consideration and I look forward to meeting some excited individuals who will help make this program the best it can be. If you have any interest in serving in these positions, please email email@example.com.
