The Madison Scouts interview committee will be conducting interviews of potential executive directors September 27 and 28 in an effort to further narrow their search. The resume committee chose which applicants should move on to the interview process and a questionnaire was sent to those people. The pool was further narrowed based on the responses to the questionnaire, said board of directors chairman Andy Davis.

The interview panel is made up of different people than the resume committee, including three staff members (one from each Madison Drum and Bugle Corps Association corps), one person who is neither a board nor a staff member and five board of directors members. The panel will make a recommendation to the full board, which will make the final decision.

“It is still solely the responsibility of the board of directors to make the final decision,” Davis said.

Beginning October 2, those interested in applying for a corps director position are encouraged to visit the Scouts’ Web site at madisonscouts.org.
