Carleen opened the meeting at 6:30pm.
Board and Committee Positions:
We discussed the need to identify potential candidates for board positions next year.
Nicole Painter – President
Carol Andersen – Treasurer
Robin Broumas – Secretary
Robyn Wilcox will remain as VP of Marketing and Communications since she has only been in that
position for one year. Also, she has been vital in the implementation of our new Membership Tool Kit
application. She knows everything about the software and functionality. It would not be wise to hand
off this task to a new person. The recommendation is to have a person shadow Robyn for the entire
band season next year so they will be able to take it over for the 2019-2020 season.
We also decided that the VP of Fundraising Board position could be downgraded to a Committee Chair person. Jennifer Reneke and Natalie would be great options.
Carleen, Kathryn and ShaeAnn will continue to be available for support and answer questions for the
Carleen wants to be the administrative coordinator for the props and help Henry with the
communication and planning. Henry is needed to help resource supplies and building. For
competitions, Carleen will help coordinate trucks and props. Laura Holley would also be a good person to help.
ShaeAnn and Quentin will continue to manage the concession stand and coordinate hospitality for the competitions.
Robyn will continue managing the uniforms.
We need a Volunteer Committee. The chairperson would identify when volunteers are needed and what they need to do, follow up and remind as needed and recruit volunteers for specific events. Angie Smith, Noelle and Emily Stephens would be good options to consider.
We need to have a wellness check with Mr. Williams and go over the marching band season. What went well? What can be improved? Expectations for next year.
Also need to discuss the band fee and having it go through Boosters next year instead of the school.
Carleen will schedule the meeting.
