Open Board Positions
Programs like ours do not exist without the help of many volunteers. In addition to volunteer time, we continue to need leaders. We have the following positions that will start in January; however, we would like to have individuals shadow through the end of December.
These openings include:
Hospitality Co-Chair - Responsible for providing food/drink service for booster funded meals and snacks. This includes marching band competitions, Concert/Craft Fair concessions and fundraiser events. Expected responsibilities include planning, preparation, serving, cleanup, financial tracking and coordinating family donations and volunteer needs.
Student Accounts Treasurer - Here's a list of the responsibilities of this role:
Maintain records of all student accounts in Charms.
Post the following in Charms: fees (i.e. marching band, concert attire, etc.), payments (i.e. checks, Paypal, cash from Treasurer spreadsheet), and fundraiser monies (i.e. King Soopers quarterly rewards, peach/pear fundraiser, etc.)
Email 2-3 statements a year to BCHSIMP families
Transfer accounts collected to accounts payable within student accounts in CharmsRun end of year closing for Charms student accounts
Familiarity with spreadsheets and data entry
Attention to detail plus comfort with balancing credit/debit information
Approximate Time Requirement:
2-3 hours monthly depending on seasonal needs, plus board meeting
Attendance at Tag Day and Craft Fair Preferred
If one of these positions sounds like they might fit your talents, we would love to discuss the position further with you. Or, if you have an idea for a way that you can serve as a leader, please reach out to our Co-Presidents and they can explain the responsibilities, time commitment, etc. and/or put you in touch with people who currently hold these roles. In addition, our board meets monthly and we would love to invite you to a meeting.
The Marching Band has been working extremely hard in order to continue its tradition as one of the top bands in the state of Colorado! A large part of that is due to the volunteer support that families and friends provide, and we're asking that you continue that support beginning with the first halftime performance at the Homecoming Football Game vs. Greeley West on Friday, September 1st at Jeffco Stadium. We need an army of volunteers for this and any every performance during the season.
We have 2 ways for you to sign up to volunteer. You will receive emails from Kristine Notter with direct links throughout the season to the competitions and football games. The other way to sign up is to log into your Charms account and click on the blue Volunteer box. This will bring you to a drop down menu where you can choose the event you want to sign up for and sign up. There are a variety of positions (chaperones, truck drivers, moving props, hospitality, etc) that are open and it is very important that these slots are filled to help make the performance run as smoothly as possible.
We all want what's best for our kiddos, so please don't hesitate to contact our Volunteer Coordinator with any questions you may have.
