Want to be part of the success of the NHS Marching Band & Guard program? Want to do something that is valuable, fun and of great service to our band & guard family? Then become a member of the NHSBPC executive board!
Our award-winning band & guard program has executive board member openings for the upcoming 2017 season. As an NHSBPC team member you will assist in the continued running of this well-oiled machine whether that's by sending out scheduled emails (Corresponding Secretary), keeping track of funds and budgets (Treasurer), recording the meeting minutes (Recording Secretary) or acting as liaison between NHSBPC members, students, and instructors (President& Vice President).
For continuity we ask that members with freshmen, sophomores and juniors (2017-2018 school year) apply. With one night a month dedicated to our board meeting followed by our membership meeting, your time commitment may be surprisingly low. Our team is happy to answer any questions you may have about any of the openings so please ask! Make it your own and remember, our team and responsibilities are very well-organized--we are always available to help or consult!
In addition to executive board positions, we will also have several important committees that will need leadership. Students and parents graduate out and the show must go on!
Please see below for open coordinators and executive board positions. Elections will take place in May so please don't hesitate to jump in! Contact Scott Reiss, our Nominating Committee Chair at firstname.lastname@example.org with your interest.
Since there are several existing board members staying on, once we have three new parent members joining, we will work together to figure out what is the best fit for each person. The hard truth is that this program cannot continue if we do not fill the board. Rest assured! This is a fun and worthwhile investment of your volunteer time!
Board positions include:
Treasurer* – Bookkeeping/Accounting experience a plus! We use QuickBooks.
Corresponding Secretary – Needs to be able to check emails a few times during the day.
*We would love to start training a new treasurer while Azra is still on the board!
Parent Coordinators Immediate Openings
We need a parent to take over the SCRIP Coordinator position since Muriel’s son will be graduating in June. This is a very important fundraising program and it only takes a couple hours each month of your time to make a huge difference in the band & guard program. Muriel will train you!
Superfun Inflatables Coordinator
This is the easiest fundraiser to coordinate! Simply be the liaison between the board and the Superfun Inflatable’s owner and coordinate the volunteers. One event in June, possibly a second over the summer. Michele Buzzi will train you!
Mattress Fundraiser Coordinator
Again, one of the easiest fundraisers to run! Simply be the liaison between the board and the mattress sales representative, coordinate publicity (with other parents) and keep track of the few volunteers we need the day of the sale. Very easy and Michele Buzzi will train you!
