Roles and Responsibilities of a Parent Representative:

    • Attend monthly Auxiliary meetings (4th Monday of the month) and give director’s report.
      • A week or so before the MA meeting, you may need to email your director to remind him/her to send you and the MA secretary a copy of their monthly report
    • Car Wash
      • At the September MA meeting parent rep will take 2 signs for each school they represent and post signs the Tuesday before the car wash
  • Take tickets/money at each concert you are a parent rep for
      • Get a list of parent emails from your director.  A week or so before each concert email parents and ask for 1-2 volunteers to help you take tickets/money at the concert.  This is a great way to other parents involved and maybe they will take on a larger MA responsibility in the future.
      • Find out from your director, for concerts where to get the following:
          • Programs and donor inserts
          • MA ticket signs
          • MA tri-fold poster
          • Orchid donor forms
        • Money box and family passes
      • Concert Procedures
          • MA sign displayed with the orchid donor letters nearby
          • Sign – price of tickets and family passes on the table where the money is taken
        • When someone purchases a family pass, they receive two passes (one for each parent). When a person presents a pass, that pass allows ALL family members (parents, children, grandparents, aunts, uncles, family friend, etc.)in no matter how many.
    • Donor list inserted in the program
      • Music directors and parent rep need to discuss who will assemble.
