Band Council

How are your band councils ran at your school? Is it just a group of people who meet once a month and hang out or do you actually do things to help raise money and improve the band?

Band Council functions more or less as a decision-making body here. Most of the people don't do a lot, but when it comes time to make a decision, we get down to business. Very few of us actually carry it out though, unless it's an all band thing. Mostly, the president and VP are responsible for making the calls and doing the organization (in addition to our director and boosters of course)

we work alone basically

we run our sections, the band president is completely independent, and the drum major is just with th instruction staff constantly

whenever we have meetings it's only to either praise eachother or talk about who's not doing their job.. and that's about it
