Federation - Looking for new recruits

Press Release by British Federation of Youth Marching Band Organisations

The Federation is 10 years old this year

Do you want to joint the party ??

We are looking for enthusiasts with skills to help us into our 2nd decade

To celebrate our 10th Birthday we are putting into practice aspects of the report we recently commissioned from the National Council for Voluntary Organisations which was funded by the John Ellerman Foundation.

For the Federation to have a sustainable future and further develop its role, it recommended that we identify additional people with specific skills to work with the current team on our national and international programme of support for the whole activity.

The Federation wants to attract people onto its voluntary management team who have skills in Finance and Funding, Communication, Marketing, Training, and Business Administration. It is important that these posts are filled by those who have as strong belief in the value of youth marching bands for individuals and for the communities that they serve.

Whilst those who fulfil these roles could wish to become Trustees, others might prefer instead to undertake their role as a member of an operational team. We are keen to recruit those with experience, and those in the early stages of their careers for whom a national voluntary role could add to their career development.

All of these positions are voluntary with budgets and expenses dependent of the success of identifying funding sources. Full details are on our web site www.marchingbands.org.uk

Those interested should respond by May 31st. It is then anticipated that a meeting of interested parties will be held in late June or early July. Those interested should view the Federationís web site in order to understand its role within the UKís youth marching band activity.
