A note from the Booster President

2022-2023 BOOSTER BOARD ELECTIONS

REMINDER - the election of our next booster board will be held at the March 10th parent meeting. All positions are open to any and all interested booster parents!


Interested in running for a position? Submit your candidate bio (a paragraph or two of who you are, which position you seek, your plans for that position, etc.) to officers@fcbands.org no later than 11:00 pm on March 1st. The slate of interested and eligible candidates will then be emailed to all booster parents on March 3rd. The board-elect will shadow the current board through the remainder of the school year, and officially take office on June 1st.


Our elected board positions are:


  • President
  • Vice President
  • Secretary

  • Engagement Coordinator
  • Events Coordinator

We want YOU to seriously consider becoming more involved with our booster activities! All elected positions are open to all active booster parents who are interested. If you have questions about any position, please reach out to the current board member - we are happy to help answer those questions.


(NOTE: the positions of Concert Band Liaison, Marching Band Liaison, Guard Liaison, and Percussion Liaison are appointed by the directors, not elected by the booster parents. We encourage those who are interested in those positions to reach out to the current liaisons and/or directors for more information!)
