St. Veronica Church

Board of Trustees

The Vikings Athletic Boosters is governed by a Board of Trustees that reports to the St. Veronica Parish Council. The Athletic Boosters is governed by By-laws which outlines various Trustee positions to help the Athletic Boosters serve the athletic interests of our Parish. We have a number of volunteers that have served on the Board of Trustees. These 2-year term commitments are vital to ensure the various sporting programs that St. Veronica offers continues to grow and prosper. Over the many years that this organization has been together, the improvements and the positive growth that the Booster organization has experienced are attributed to its volunteer program, its membership and the Booster Board. These people have offered new ideas and different perspective on finding various ways to improve and add additional activities/sports that we currently offer. Without having new and energetic individuals stepping into these roles or volunteering their time, the St. Veronica athletics will not continue to grow and improve. Please prayerfully consider a board position.

 

At any given time, there may be various open board and coordinator positions. If interested in any of the below open positions, please email Booster President Derek Rahe by clicking on his name below, or contact the Parish Office. Please place in the subject line: Open Booster Position.
