Band Booster Forum

The Band Booster Forum is a TWO day event to be offered for the Executive Boards and general members of Middle and High School Band Booster Organizations. It is a flat fee of $75 for as many people from your organization that would like to attend! These seminars were created to assist band directors and parents to overcome challenges posed with Band Booster Organizations, including bylaws structure, fundraising, and communication of booster clubs.
