Green Band Boosters Committees

Listed below are descriptions and functions of the various Band Booster Committees and Special Committees of the organization.  In each case, parent volunteers dedicate time and talents, each according to ability and availability, in order to successfully organize and promote the activity.

Parent volunteers are both encouraged and welcome to participate.  The committee chairperson can give detailed information about opportunities available.  Some activities are limited due to high parent involvement while others can accommodate an unlimited number of volunteers.

Uniform Committee –  In conjunction with the Executive Board, this committee recommends the purchase of uniforms, is responsible for all the uniforms, maintains an up-to-date roster on all uniform parts, issues, collects, cleans, repairs and stores the uniforms.  Though marching season is the busiest time, year-round responsibilities require a large, unlimited number of volunteers.

Chaperone Committee –  Responsible for getting chaperones per the recommendation of the Band Director(s) for each officially sanctioned Band function, the chaperones may also be requested by the Band Director(s) to handle additional responsibilities, e.g., maintaining the medical forms file, or accompanying students during an emergency situation.
