Call for BOB Manual Task Force members

We are at the verge of the 14th year of the Middle School Battle of the Books program and the third year of the High School program. The program has undergone many changes in these years and continues to grow! In order to be sure the program can continue into the future, we need a manual that will describe all of the procedures, guidelines and the mission of the program.

The manual will be a big project but the executive board would like to have it in place by the end of this Battle of the Books year. In order to strategize the best way to produce this manual and it’s contents, we would like to have a four-member task force. This group would meet as needed and ultimately assist in producing the manual. Ideally, the first meeting could be in November.

If you would like to be a part of this task force, please let me know by Wednesday, Nov. 1, 2017.

Thank you!

Maureen McGrath
Mid-Hudson Battle of the Books Executive Chairperson
