A MOD is a Manager on Duty. There is a MOD assigned to each day of all events the Band Booster organization participates such as: the TNT Fireworks Stand, the Concession Stand, the Fair, the Merchandise Trailer, etc. MODs are members of the Executive Board and a list will be provided at each event with the MODs for each day and their contact numbers. If you have any questions or need assistance while on your shift, contact your MOD.
What is BOA?
BOA stands for Bands of America. The Pirate Pride participates in one or more BOA events each year including the BOA Super Regional at the Alamo Dome in San Antonio in November.
What are student accounts and "points" and how do they work?
Each band student has a financial account administered by the band director. This account can be used for band-related expenses throughout the school year, and many also be accumulated from year to year to help offset the cost of a students' Senior Trip. Volunteering and working events sponsored by the Lubbock-Cooper Band Boosters can earn money for these accounts. When you work at designated events, you will earn points which are later converted into money for these accounts.
To convert points into dollars we take the profits from specified fundraisers and allocate 50% of the profits to the general booster fund and 50% disbursed across student accounts based on points earned. [Example: If our profits are $1,000 and 100 points were awarded, we would take 1/2 of the profit, or $500, and add it to the general booster fund and then allocate the other $500 to be disbursed amongst the 100 points. Each point would then have a value of $5. For each point earned for your student, $5 would then be placed in his/her account.]
We use SignUpGenius to ask for volunteers. These opportunities are filled on a first-come-first-served basis.
Please note that unexpected volunteer opportunities may arise at times that may not be point eligible, but we will try to make it clear when events don't earn points for the volunteers. If in doubt, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your questions.
What is OAM?
OAM stands for Once A Month Meal. The LCP Band Boosters partner with local restaurants once a month for a fund raising meal. Each restaurant gives a portion of the sales during the event to the LCP Band. It goes into the general booster fund to provide things needed by the band.
No. All band parents are automatically considered boosters. Extended family (grandparents, aunts, uncles, graduated siblings, etc.) can also support the band as a booster.
