Ambassador Committee, email@example.com
The purpose of the Ambassador Committee is to make all members feel welcome and comfortable as they consider their involvement within the organization. Ambassadors are assigned sections (like our students) so they can provide a more tailored insight to BPA members about the band parent experience. They host ‘parent only’ social events to enhance camaraderie and continue to provide band parents with ways to connect, gather information, volunteer, and engage with the membership at large. Ambassadors assist with communication to parent groups (sections) and some fundraising initiatives.
