Open Board Positions

Programs like ours do not exist without the help of many volunteers. In addition to volunteer time, we continue to need leaders. We have the following positions that will start in January; however, we would like to have individuals shadow through the end of December.

If one of these positions sounds like they might fit your talents, we would love to discuss the position further with you. Or, if you have an idea for a way that you can serve as a leader, please reach out to our president, Lori Allington, and she can explain the responsibilities, time commitment and other details and put you in touch with people who currently hold these roles. In addition, our board meets monthly and we would love to invite you to a meeting.

Upcoming Volunteer Information

Interested in volunteering? Contact Kristine Notter at bchsimpvolunteer@gmail.com for more information. 

The marching band has been working extremely hard in order to continue its tradition as one of the top bands in the state of Colorado! A large part of that is due to the volunteer support that families and friends provide, and we're asking that you continue that support beginning with the first halftime performance at the homecoming football game vs. Greeley West on Friday, Sept. 1 at Jeffco Stadium. We need an army of volunteers for this and any every performance during the season.

We have two ways for you to sign up to volunteer. You will receive emails from Kristine Notter with direct links throughout the season to the competitions and football games. The other way to sign up is to log into your Charms account and click on the blue Volunteer box. This will bring you to a drop-down menu where you can choose the event you want to sign up for and sign up. There are a variety of positions (such as chaperones, truck drivers, moving props and hospitality) that are open and it is very important that these slots are filled to help make the performance run as smoothly as possible.

We all want what's best for our kiddos, so please don't hesitate to contact Kristine Notter, volunteer coordinator and chaperone chair with any questions you may have, whether it be by email, text or phone call.
