------------------------------------- other changes coming to the boosters in 2017/2018
The Board will conduct regular Board meetings – open to everyone
General Member MeetingS WILL BE HELD in both the Fall and Spring.
Communications/Transparency: the following will be posted and update on the website:
By-laws and other formation documents
Minutes of meetings
btn Boosters financial statements
financial reports providing revenue and expense summaries for major fundraising activities.
Committees: Each Committee which sponsors events such as the Gala and/or dances will have a steering team which will be composed of both parents, staff and faculty. This will give parents the opportunity to engage with and forge relationships with staff and faculty outside the academic landscape.
TIME TO GET INVOLVED – We have over 1400 parents at BTN and less than 5% of those parents are actively involved in the Boosters.
many parents say "they want to be involved but are too busy during the day"
other parents feel there are a the lack of opportunities to get involved at BTN, or a lack of access or claim the are “not feeling a connection” to the school.
Here is an opportunity for all those parents as well as many others to make a change.
The Boosters organization is at an inflection point. There are a lot of ideas and opportunities that the Boosters have not previously explored. We need members and a Board of Directors that can bring new energy and vision. That will not happen if we as parents, especially those who have not been active up to now, do not step up, run for Board positions and lead the new Boosters to success.
This should not be a large time or resource burden for a five person Board and will make a huge impact on both the BTN community and our children’s middle and high school experiences.
