By Laws and Board Elections

Good morning!  Please review the By Laws for the Salem Band Boosters which have several proposed changes. You may view these By Laws by clicking the link above.  These changes include: 

a.  Removing the member-at-large positions

b.  Alternating the election of several board positions so that we have continuity and experienced board members serving at all times

c.  How we meet on a monthly basis — full booster meetings in odd numbered months and just the board and the band director in even numbered months.  

Please review these bylaws and contact either myself or another board member to discuss any questions you might have. We will be voting to enact these By Laws next month.  In the spirit of the expected changes with that will be made by these by laws, we will be setting forth a slate for the positions of President, Vice-President of Volunteers and Publicity and Secretary.  You will find detailed job descriptions for these positions in the attached By Laws.  

If you are the parent of a student who will be in the Salem High School or Andrew Lewis Middle School bands over the next two years and would like to run for one of our board positions, please contact me at  We would love to welcome have some new members on our Board to help and support our growing band program!  We will be emailing the proposed slate of officers next month to be voted upon at the May concert.  An officer’s term runs begins on September 1 and runs for two years.  If you have any questions about any of the board positions, please contact me.  

Have a great weekend!

Melanie Burton, President of Salem Band Boosters
