Chaperone Manager – This manager will coordinate with Mr. Self and find enough chaperones for each band event.    There is a chaperone handbook, and the head chaperone will be responsible for ensuring that all chaperones follow this handbook.  This person will ride the bus with the band to all away games and events.  This manager will make a list of all volunteers and turn it in several days in advance of all games and events.

Concessions Manager– This manager is in charge of the visitor’s concessions stand at all home games and all aspects of the concessions stand.  The manager is responsible for keeping the concession stand and storage room, clean, neat, and stocked during football season.  This manager purchases the needed supplies.  The manager is also responsible for making sure that we have plenty of volunteers to cover each home game from before the game all the way to cleaning up after the game. The manager also communicates regularly with the band officers to ensure that we have everything that we need to make the concessions stand a success.

Transportation Manager – This manager ensures that all equipment is loaded onto the trailer before each away event in a timely manner and is secured so that the equipment is not damaged during travel time. This person is also responsible for making sure that we have someone to pull the equipment trailer to all away games and any other events where we need to take the equipment trailer. This manager is also responsible for helping find volunteers to move the equipment on and off the field for half-time shows and to and from the stadium during all home games. (Some of these volunteers will be chaperones.)

Nutrition Manager – This manager will be responsible for finding organizations (churches, businesses, civic groups, etc.) to feed the band before games or to donate money toward the cost of feeding the band. This person also needs to be at the school in time to help set up to feed the band before the games. This person will also be responsible for finding volunteers to help serve the food if needed and clean up after the band eats. (Some of these volunteers will be chaperones.)

Program Manager– This manager is responsible for managing the list of businesses to contact for business ads, maintaining a list of those businesses and individuals that have paid for ads, designing the program, communicating with the football coach, cheerleading coach, and band director to get all information for the program, coordinating with the printer to ensure that the program is printed correctly and in a timely manner.  We currently use the Micro-Soft Publisher software to design the program so this person must either already know how to use this software or be familiar with another comparable software program.

Uniform Manager – This manager will work closely with the student uniform manager. We have new uniforms, and we want to keep them in good shape. We have new barcodes and a scanner to help keep a better inventory of the uniforms. This will need to be set up this year. This person needs to help with scheduling any repairs with the seamstress and coordinating with Mr. Self to schedule with the dry cleaners. Uniforms are to be checked in and out before and after each game and competition. 

Webmaster -- The webmaster will frequently update and maintain a professional look to the Rambler band website ( with pertinent information, announcements, photos, and video of a wide variety of band events.  This person will also collect photos and videos from band members, parents, and others so as to be inclusive of all band members on the website.  Duties will also include keeping documentation of passwords, payment deadlines, etc. that pertain to the maintenance of the website.
