TMEA & Taft - A Long History Together

For the last 21 consecutive years, the Taft Raider Band Boosters have had the honor to work with the Texas Music Educators Association (TMEA) at  their statewide convention held here in San Antonio.  This is a huge event that normally has over 35,000 attendees. The upcoming convention will take place on February 14-17, 2018 at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center. The Taft Raider Band Boosters Organization is the only booster organization TMEA has worked with for the last 21 years, but in order to continue with this tradition,  we need your help. 

What has made our participation at TMEA a success for the last 21 years has been the incredible amount of volunteers who have come out to help us during the event.  Our role at this event is to provide staffing to monitor the entrances of the venue and provide other support functions. In return for our services, TMEA makes a sizeable donation to the Taft Raider Band Boosters.  This is a huge event that has helped to contribute up to nearly 50%  of our annual fundraising goal in the past.    

Again, this is a huge fundraising event, but we need all the volunteers we can get to make this yet another successful year.  With the expansion of the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center, more volunteers will be needed than in previous years to successfully provide all the required services.  If you or anyone you now is interested in investing time in this great fundraising opportunity, please let us know.  The more volunteers we have, the greater the opportunity of soaring success and the higher the probability of continuing to work with TMEA for many years to come.  

If you have any questions or suggestions, please feel free to contact us at tmea@taftraiderband.org

Sincerely,

Doug Rager
