Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

This year we have had an entire change in our president, treasurer, and grant manager. We hope to increase our number of community performances by making phone calls to various cities which did not book us in 2011 due to the down economy. Due to attrition of our musicians, we are constantly looking to recruit new replacements. This is a constant and difficult goal to achieve.The survey will be conducted by a board member. This includes a survey sent to the parade chairperson in each community and also our band members.

Measurable Outcome(s)

They increased the number of community performances by contacting various cities which did not book them in 2011 due to the down economy. They recruited new musicians.
