The Ithaca Concert Band is managed by its members on a volunteer basis. There are many opportunities for band members to get involved in the management of the band’s operations, concerts, and other events. We encourage everyone to share their enthusiasm, expertise, and skills. Those interested in volunteering for the Board should talk to the band president.

The band has an all volunteer Board of Directors and several committees. Responsibilities of the Board of Directors are listed in the band’s by-laws. Briefly, the Board is comprised of four Officers, four Directors, and between one and four Members at Large. Elections are held annually in January.
