At the Town Hall meeting on September 27, over 50 individuals participated in a discussion regarding the future of Minnesota Brass. The leadership team shared the results of the recent stakeholder engagement process and made explicit the organization’s need for new volunteers. 2019 offers an opportunity for the organization to develop new leadership, new roles and new excitement for the future.
Specifically, the organization is seeing new administrative leadership, new potential board members and new volunteers.
Minnesota Brass is hiring for three positions to for the 2018-19 artistic season.

They have an opportunity to leverage our many strengths as an organization and chart the course for the future. Previous experience with Minnesota Brass is not required. For the organization to thrive in 2019 and beyond, we need an energetic, passionate group of leaders who are ready to build the future.

Minnesota Brass is seeking to grow the board of directors with a particular emphasis on age, gender and racial diversity to better reflect our community. The board is responsible for the strategy and long-term vision of the organization. Additionally, the board is responsible for the financial health of the organization and is ultimately responsible for resource development (fundraising) and supervising the administrative team. The board will have many large issues on its plate in the future and will require strategic thinkers who are able to see the long-term view.
Minnesota Brass is seeking to grow its cadre of active volunteers to support all our ensembles. These assignments may include projects or one-time opportunities to help.
