Administration of the Bands

Board of directors

An elected volunteer Board of Directors (BOD) oversees the operation of the PNHB.

Without the BOD the bands could not function.

Their many responsibilities include hiring our conductors and coaches, renting rehearsal space, organising performances, insurance, organising social events, setting fees, publicity, controlling our assets (especially instruments and music), and much much more.
