Question:

Question:

What benefits do I get if I become a member?

Answer:

You get to vote on who is on the executive boad of the organization and help shape the direction of the group. Members are encouraged to sign up to work in the concessions booth as this is our main source of fundraising.

You also can use some of the equipment with approval, when it is available such as the slushy machine.  You just need to be the one running it and furnish your own materials.

Question:

How do I get on the agenda to request support?

Answer:

Coaches please note the following:

The Athletic Director has requested you first make the request to the AD Department as dollars may be available within their budget to cover the expense.

Once this protocol has been met you may then send an email (Chesaningsportsboosters@gmail.com) to the Sports Boosters President or Secretary.  You’ll want to include your name, what sport you are representing, what you are requesting and the amount of support being requested.  Once the email is received, we’ll make sure it gets on the agenda.  If you don’t have time to send an email, then just come to the meeting.  We’ll make sure you get on the agenda.  We do require all requests to be made in person, else they are tabled for the following meeting.  All requests should include a printed invoice/estimate and if possible bring comparable items for price comparison.

Question:

Who sets the menu and item selling price for the food concessions?

Answer:

Each year, the Concession Director(s) along with at least 1 additional booster members will work together to recommend adjusting the menu and pricing.  They will present to the executive board to receive formal approval to move forward.  It is up to the Concession Director if they want to try something new.  No need to make a motion if they are just testing out a new product to sell; however, once they are ready to make it a permanent item on the agenda, they should present to the executive board for formal approval.

Question:

What expenses will Sports Boosters cover when an individual or a team qualifies for state competition?

Answer:

We will put an ad in the newspaper congratulating the individual or team that qualified for state competition.  We will also furnish Gatorade and/or water based on need for the competition.
