The Band Alumni Society is dependent on volunteers to function. Volunteers are always welcome to help organize events, run the Band Alumni Society, or just show up and play at events. Pep fests, summer band, or a Gopher alum's retirement party, there are constant opportunities to play your instrument. However you can donate time, there is an event that needs it!If you would like to consider joining the Alumni Band Executive Council, About Us section to read more about what positions exist and what is involved in serving as a council member in each position. This is one of the best ways for volunteers to ensure the future success of the organization.Homecoming, Summer Band, and many other events require organization effort. If there is a specific event that interests you or if you would just like to pitch in wherever needed, contact us at email@example.com and we'll know you are willing to help.There are many playing events throughout the year that require musicians. The Homecoming parade and picnic band in the fall, U of M Athletic Pep Band events over Winter Break, the UMAA Annual Meeting in the Spring, and our Summer Community Band are all open to anyone willing to play and are fun ways to keep playing your instrument. Make sure you are on the playing opportunities mailing list by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org .
