Re: What role does the director play in
Band booster (like all booster organizations) should be there to support the students. Unfortunately, many adults use these organizations to gain some sort of power or authority over others. As a band director, you have say over how they support the band. However, as an organization, they can (and should) have a set of bylaws that set forth how things are accomplished. But, by "policy" it depends. Policy on how things are run in regards to the boosters? Yes. On how things are run in regards to the band? No. But, as the band director, your priority in this situation is to look out for the interests of the students. If there is something you do not feel is right and it affects the students, then you need to speak up.
