    IMHO the MD's salary should be double the sum of what the Secretary and Treasurer get. In a non-contesting band that would be sweet FA in monetary terms, of course a 'proper bandsman/woman' wouldn't expect much if anything in the way of payment ...... just for their efforts not to be taken for granted, etc.

    Perks, the command of the band to produce (as best they can) the music that the MD wants to hear and the satisfaction gained in turning a band's rubbish playing into something presentable.
