Board of Directors
The mission of the Foothills Brass Society is to sponsor and facilitate education in, and appreciation of, music.
Foothills Brass is dedicated to exceptional artistic presentation, meaningful educational activities, and innovative leadership in the artistic community.
The Board hosts monthly meetings to facilitate its activities and an Annual General Meeting for all society members. Members provide input in marketing, visioning, structure, and planning for the Calgary Concert Series, amongst other activities.
Foothills Brass Society is registered in Alberta through the Societies act, and with the Canadian government as a registered charity. The society is maintained by a board of directors currently standing at five members.

Members of the Quintet are engaged on a per-service basis as individual contractors.
The Society hires administrative assistance and consultants as required. Volunteers are engaged to assist with marketing, concert presentation, fundraising and other activities from time to time.
Foothills Brass Society Annual General Meeting takes place in early June. A board retreat often takes place in the Fall. The Board meets six to eight times per year. Committee meetings are scheduled on an as needed basis. Committees include:
