HELP NEEDED


Seeking YMB Board Members

Perhaps you've enjoyed post-concert receptions, or your student has been able to offset trip costs by selling greens, or your student has been fitted for their formal uniform quickly and efficiently.  None of these things would happen without the assistance of the York Music Boosters.  In addition to managing concert receptions, the Greens Sale, and uniform distribution, YMB provides monetary donations for programs such as Fine Arts Week and summer scholarships, among other things.  
     We are an important support arm for the York Music Department and we need your help.
     This year we are experiencing an especially large board turnover due largely to graduation and are looking for several new members, specifically:
Vice-President, Secretary, Assistant Treasurer, Scholarship Chair, Uniforms Chair, Greens Sale Chair and Escrow Chair. 
     Please consider volunteering your time to the York Music Boosters, which directly supports our wonderful music students.  We would love to have you!
     We meet approximately 5-6 times a year.  Most positions do not require much time, or require a bit of work but only for a couple of weeks during the year.  Please contact any board member for more information.  Thank you so much for your consideration!
