The band needs YOU to run for a spot on the board!

There are 7 board positions (not including past president, which is not an elected position), and the members are elected annually.  Every seat is open every year, and each board member must be elected each year.  In other words, no one currently sitting is "automatically" on the board next year - we all have to be elected.

DON'T BE INTIMIDATED!  No special skills are required for any position; just a willingness to serve.  This is a fantastic chance to be more involved with the band and to help out an organization you're already very committed to.

The board positions are:

The president sets the direction for the Band and the Board, oversees the activities of the Board and the officers, presides at meetings of the Board and of the members, sees that orders and resolutions of the Board are carried into effect, and oversees the booking and production of concerts.
