The Madison Scouts are pleased to announce that Bill Howard has been named Business Manager. Howard, a founding member of DCI, has been involved with the drum and bugle corps activity for 60 years. Among other things, Howard was a lead soprano for the Madison Scouts, the corps’ executive director for 12 years (including 1975 when the Scouts won their first DCI Championship), the founder of Drum Corps Midwest and a member of the DCI Hall of Fame. An entrepreneur, Howard has owned several businesses during his career, including, most recently, Imagesetter, Inc., a printing and pre-press business located in Madison.

Bill will be working closely with Executive Director Jeff Spanos and the board of directors on the financial planning and strategy for the organization. His focus is the short-term and longterm stability of the organization. Additionally, Bill will be facilitating and mentoring both the administrative team and volunteers.

"We are incredibly fortunate to have someone of Bill’s capacity serving the organization as Business Manager," said Spanos. "He has wealth of knowledge both in business and the drum corps activity and has already proven himself to be an incredible resource. I very much look forward to working with Bill on a daily basis as we continue to build the Madison Scouts."

For almost 70 years, the Madison Scouts have been an integral part of developing and shaping young men’s lives through musical enrichment and marching excellence. We are a non-profit youth arts organization known for presenting energetic, powerful and crowdpleasing performances.
