The director and coaches do not have any input or say in the use of the funds, this will be completely under the discretion of the booster club. The decision on the budget and expenses will be voted by the majority of the members during established meeting times. All parents of the involved children in the wrestling program are automatically part of the Booster Club.
These positions are all volunteer based. The positions are filled initially by those who volunteer for it. If there are more than one persons interested in it then an election will be held for it. All positions terms are to last a year (Beginning of October to end of Sept.)

External Audit will occur at least once a year and consist of two individuals (one should be MADC treasurer or representative and another person) with the treasurer present. Booster club meetings will be done at least 6 times a year. The meetings can be held remotely or in person.
