The Chain of Command

All successful organizations have structure. To assist in the running of our group, we have certain people designated as leaders. The Drum Majors and other Student Leaders have been given these titles because of their wealth of knowledge and commitment to this organization. If you need valve oil or a reed, ask your section leader. It’s not that you needing valve oil or a reed in unimportant, but if everyone is asking Mr. Fleming for these items, we will never get anything done. So, please follow the following “Chain of Command”.
