Our band are thinking of having a position of band manager added to the executive committee. The idea being that such a position would ease the pressures particularly on our band sec. We have an idea of the type of things we think the band manager should be responsible for but i'm keen to hear of what responsibilities band managers in other bands have. We want to ensure we cover all the bases but we dont want to work the incumbent into the ground or have such a range of duties it'll put people off taking the job on. Can anybody advise or give their thoughts on the ideal role of a band manager? What tasks does your band manager deal with?
