Board Members needed

Note: BTBA Board’s meeting scheduled for Sunday, June 25th at 7:00 p.m. will be postponed due to inavailability of a quorum of board members.  The board is reviewing a makeup date and will update everyone as soon as we know it. Thank you!

 

We Want You – Become a BTBA Board Member.

 

Although we are part-way through the 2017 season, we need to start planning for the 2018 season. 

 

Tryouts are scheduled for March 17-18, 2018.

 

The BTBA Board is presently comprised of 12U and 13U parents.  The BTBA Board is looking to add more members, parents of current 10U and 11U players are specifically needed.  We already have two 10U parents, Robert Chamberlain and Corey Vucinovich, who have agreed to serve on the BTBA Board for the upcoming season.  We need more!

 

If you are interested in serving on the Board for 2017-2018, then please contact either Aaron Dean, President, or Scott Baker, Vice-President. 

 

Thank you!  BTBA
