Monthly Band Booster Board meeting minutes can be viewed from this page: (link)
Every parent of a Green Devil Band member is a Band Booster member.
Band Boosters are actively engaged in:
Supporting and advocating for the band program at SPHS
Providing funds for purchase of equipment, music, staff, etc.
Band events and trips as chaperones and volunteers.
Organizing and implementing fundraising activities.
Volunteering in the concession stand for home football games.
Encouraging new parent participation in the booster organization.
There are many ways that parents can volunteer throughout the year to help the band program. Please visit the Volunteers page for more information.
Also see the Parent Resources page for information that focuses on parent interest.
Band Booster Role
The Band Booster organization provides the primary financial support of extracurricular aspects of the SPHS band program, especially marching band activities. The Band Director identifies annual goals, activities, and schedule for the band program and creates a budget to support those goals. The Band Board is responsible for reviewing and approving the budget and provides ongoing oversight of income and expenses. The Board provides hands-on management of fee collection and fund-raising activities.
Duties of the Board Officers
All Board officers and the Band Director attend regularly scheduled monthly Board meetings (usually 90 minutes). Whereas Board members are active volunteers themselves, the Board recruits and depends on parent volunteers to support most band activities.
All Board Officers help and support each other and parent volunteers, and communicate positively with the band community. Each Board position has several formal and ongoing duties per the Bylaws which can be found at this link.
However, in a nutshell the formal responsibilities are:
The Band Treasurer maintains all financial records and performs most annual report filings.
Treasurer should be organized and comfortable with tracking money and using desktop accounting software.
The Secretary records monthly board meeting minutes and is the conduit for board communications with the parent community, mostly through email broadcasts.
Secretary manages volunteer recruitment and assignments
Secretary should be comfortable taking meeting minutes and likes writing encouraging emails for volunteers
The Vice President manages the marching band registration process and maintains parent and student lists.
Vice president should be very organized to handle registrations
The President presides at all Board and membership meetings and creates the agenda for each.
President should be aware of the status of all activities and able to troubleshoot problems and recruit volunteers as needed
There are always situations where each board member chips in to work on projects or tasks and so the overall effort is balanced across the year. Except for the Treasurer's management of the accounting records, nearly all of these responsibilities can be shared or re-assigned responsibilities among other Board members.
