Hope everyone had a nice holiday spent with friends and family. The year is quickly coming to an end, yet there are several (fun) things left for the Shark Band to do! By the way, the Jazz band played wonderfully at the 3rd St. Event, great job to all of you! Click Here to view all of the members of the CCPS Honor Band. GCHS has quite a showing.

· Answer any questions
Per our bylaws, which can be found on our website www.gchsharkband.com we have a Nominating Committee prior to our Annual Election for Board Members. The Nominating Committee consists of 3 members who wish to assist in finding the best candidates for any open Board Positions. This Committee also accepts nominations from other members and verifies that the nominee is in good standing (owes no band fees). Anyone can nominate another Member or one can nominate him or herself.
Anyone who wishes to serve on this Nominating Committee should email Cori Olayos, prior to the meeting date, at firstname.lastname@example.org
We will have 2 other General Meetings in the spring when we announce Candidates and Vote. Those dates will be announced at the meeting on December 13th.
