Build It: They Will Come

The last blog in the series "Breaking the Bundle! - A Guide to Organizing a Booster Organization"

This is it—the plan to break the bundle that burdens your band director! Let your director get back to the work of teaching music to your students, rather than stressing about the management of details that someone without a music degree can complete.

With a well-trained executive board in place, with team coordinators knowing their responsibilities, with well organized teams, with well organized notebooks in place, the director's bundle has just been broken. The director will be able to focus his/her energy to the band students where it should be, rather than worrying with the many tasks that can now go to the booster organization. Many will feel a part of the organization; support will continue to grow, and most important of all—the students will be learning music again. After all, isn't that what a band program is about?

Visit the Organization section under the Resources tab on the www.amparents.org site, to find forms and documents that have been tried and proven. As with any program, you will have items that are specific to your needs. Change these forms to fit your program; they are merely a guide for you to model making your booster organization exclusively yours.

Have fun! You are doing a great work for the youth in your school. Years down the road you will be thanked for the efforts that you are making!
