FBBC By-Laws to Be Updated

FBBC By-Laws Updated

Please click on the link below to see a DRAFT of the new FBBC By-laws. These will be presented at the April 7th meeting and then voted at our May 5th meeting. Please plan to attend BOTH of these meetings to ensure that we have proper representation!

Here is a summary of the changes:

1. Change FBBC Meetings from monthly to 4-5 times per year.

2. Remove the stipulation that full-time CCISD employees cannot serve as an FBBC Officer.

3. Clarify the roles of some of the committee chair positions.

4. Remove the “Game Drinks” chair position (eliminated after 2019 season).

5. Add a new chair position for “Hydration Coordinator.”

6. Move the band scholarship information from the “Special Committees” section to the “Off-Board Position” section.

7. Remove outdated information that no longer applies and add clarifying information as needed.

Nominating Committee

Joy King has volunteered to lead the nominating committee…THANK YOU! We are still looking for two more people to help her. Joy has already made a lot of progress but our bylaws say that the committee must have 3 people. The nominating committee will be made official at the April 7th meeting.

Here is a message from Joy:

“We really need your help next year to keep the band/color guard booster going. If you are a current chair and have not responded, please let me know if you plan to continue next year. If you are interested in any of the following OPEN positions then please contact Joy King at (281-853-5470).”

FBBC Job Descriptions

All volunteer jobs are described in our by-laws. Feel free to Contact the current chair or board member if you have questions about a position that you are interested in. Contact info is at the very bottom of the buzz.

FBBC General Meeting Crisis!

We were a few members shy of meeting a quorum at our meeting last week, which means that we are behind in voting on various items. We have only 2 meetings left this year and it is IMPERITIVE that we have adequate representation! Please help us by marking your calendar and attending these meetings. Here is a summary of the important business to vote on at our last two meetings.

Spring UIL

Our beautiful new school is very popular for events! In case you haven’t heard, we are hosting the pre-UIL event for CCISD schools (April 12-13) and the UIL event for schools in our region (April 26-28). These events take place during the school day during the week. Volunteers will be needed to serve as “timers” in the sight-reading room and to provide refreshments to the judges and other volunteers. Receipts for any purchases made are given directly to our band directors and you will receive immediate reimbursement. As a “timer” you can see your student’s performance first hand! Look for a sign-up Genius in next week’s Band Buzz to see how you can support these efforts.

Band Banquet

The banquet will be on Saturday, May 14th at 6 pm in the beautiful large atrium in the Bayou Building at the University of Houston, Clear Lake. The band council has chosen a “Great Gatsby/1920’s” theme and Italian food for the meal. Tickets can be ordered in April for this event. Look for a form in an upcoming Buzz that you can print out, select meal choices, and attach a check. Note: Senior students attend free of charge!

If you have special talents in event planning (or ideas in reference to the 1920s theme) that you would like to share, then contact Chrystal Limon (Band Banquet Chair) at . In addition, we will need lots of volunteers at the event itself and will keep you informed as it gets closer.

Senior Gifts for the Band Banquet

Hello, Seniors and Senior Band Parents!

I am working on band gifts for the seniors and would like some help with collecting pictures and information for all of our senior band students.

Please fill out the following form to submit information and photos by no later than midnight, Saturday, March 19, 2022, to be sure that I have time to create and order the gifts before the Band Banquet!

Thank you,

Samantha Houston
