*What are the requirements for an At-Large Member?
They bring in fiscal funds, attend at least 5 meetings/events throughout the year, and support the band. They have a 2-year term and they can be voted to continue in that position. Current At-Large Members are…Jason Applegate, Greg McGill, Craig Baenziger, and Deena Aguiar. At least two At-Large Members need to be parents. The Directors and Executive Committee reach out to At-Large Members and inform them as to what is needed to support the organization and students. Commitment is sometimes greater during a trip year.
*The next step is updating the By laws. They will then be posted on the website.
*The changes take effect immediately.
*Bios and photographs of each person that is running for office will be sent out tonight after the meeting. Elections will take place during next week’s regularly scheduled meeting. It will be a majority vote. The meeting will be in-person and via Zoom. Voting will take place via Google Form for both venues. In-person voting will also be offered a paper ballot.
