Attention Music Parents:
We need your help! FOMAHI has two open Board positions and a few other important volunteer opportunities that need to be filled as soon as possible. Having a complete Board with a committed group of music parent volunteers is essential to our high quality music program. Without parents, our program would not run as efficiently and our students would not have all of the amazing opportunities they have. Please consider one of the following:

Orchestra Co-President: Works with an amazing board, attends monthly meetings, facilitates meetings with co-presidents, communicates with fellow board members and volunteers throughout the year, communicates with music directors as needed, assists with FOMAHI events as needed (ex: Music-A-Thon, Open House), assists with nominating committee, manageable volunteer hours
Website/Membership Toolkit Coordinator: Updates website as needed, troubleshoots website issues throughout the year, contributes to board conversations regarding improving FOMAHI communication through website, this position is mostly via email
