The Booster Crew volunteer primary role is to be helpful and supportive.  The Crew will help to highlighting Eagle Pride by communicating out the great wins and accomplishments to the Booster Club, for its weekly Booster Buzz emails and Facebook Page
    1. If there is not an Advisory Committee Chair for said activity, then the Booster Crew will assist the Advisor / Coach(es) with any possible funding needs.    Possible Grant Requests: The Booster Crew volunteer will reach out to the coach, advisor right away to see if they have any possible funding needs that the Booster Club can help with.  With regards to sports teams, ideally this would happen before the season starts.   Website resources: Historical funding per activity.  Funding Request Guidelines, FAQ’s including difference between ASB and Boosters.  Please note all Funds Request start with ASB.

  5. Facebook /Twitter/ Snapchat / Booster Buzz / Website: The Booster Club members love seeing pictures and hearing about their IHS students.  This is the best thing you can do to show our school what is happening with your activity.  Booster Club relies on you to know what is going on.Pass along Big Wins / Points of Pride / Pictures to Facebook Chair.  All information will be shared with the Website and Booster Buzz Chair.  This will ensure that your information is seen in all Booster Club channels.
