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.

Board Announcements

Recently, the BOD has been researching the possibility of rearranging the bands, with the idea of smoothing the transitions between lower level bands. Part of this research was a survey of the membership for ideas about what was most important to them. Many members wrote many diverse comments - you can read them in this PDF file Comments from February Survey.pdf
