This list of descriptions includes both the elected positions as well the positions for which we still need volunteers!
The President is familiar with the mission and bylaws of the PTG Booster Club and creates an atmosphere where the board members and officials can carry out their duties efficiently to serve the needs of the PTG. The president leads all official booster club meetings, including board meetings and parent meetings, setting the agenda and carrying it out. The President has the ability to assist the treasurer with carrying out their duties. In addition, the president seeks out the needs or barriers to success of members carrying out their duties, provides support and assistance, and may serve in an advisory capacity to all board members and elected officials.
Assist the President in all of the President's duties -- may be chosen to serve as President the following year. The Vice President may lead certain subcommittees of the board and carry out other leadership activities, as designated by the President.
The Treasurer's role involves a bit of banking, tracking deposits from concessions, donations, dues and ad sales, writing checks for food and reimbursement, reconciling monthly credit card and bank statements, some data entry into Quick Books and running reports for board meetings. It does take a bit of time every month and some extra time just before and after shows. Training is available!
Create and maintain email lists that allow the Booster Club to communicate with the parents of PTG members. The Corresponding Secretary is also responsible for the bulk of communication with PTG parents, and works closely with the Membership Coordinator to assure that the Booster Club has accurate email lists.
Take detailed notes at each meeting, then type up the meeting minutes for approval by the board and disburse.
Develop and run new fundraising efforts. Write yearly grant requests to established sources and any new sources that become available. Coordinate fundraising opportunity with PTSO Thrift Shop and Ad Sales Coordinator.
Ad Sales Coordinator
PTG produces a program for each show (excluding student productions), which is given out at each performance. Booster Club parents/guardians sell advertising space to local businesses in these programs or place their own personal ad. Prices and sizes of advertisements are determined by the Booster Club Board. The Ad Sales coordinator manages the activities by updating the ad purchase contract, providing sales leads to parents, receiving and logging completed contracts, payments, and tracking overall sales. You interact and coordinate with the student in charge of designing and producing the program.
Typically a majority of Ads are sold in the fall with a few additions for Future Stars, the winter drama and the spring show. Changes to the program are handled by the student in charge of design, but you will need to review the program before it goes to the printers. Some knowledge of publishing software is useful but not necessary.
