What does the Tech Boosters do for the team?
The Tech Boosters manages all of the team finances with the money that our operations team raises. They organize all of our events with the school and make sure we have a faculty member at the meetings. Our Tech Booster parents also organize meals for our meetings every weekend and take into account specific dietary needs of mentors and students. As mentioned on the parent volunteers page, the Tech Boosters also make sure that we have transportation to and from annual competitions. They also work with our lead mentors to register for the closest in-season competitions. The Tech Boosters collect permission slips and student payments to register for the team as well.
