Evan Dixon selected as Member Advocate
The Troopers Drum & Bugle Corps are pleased to announce the selection of Evan Dixon as our Member Advocate.
The role of the Member Advocate is to ensure members have immediate access during any corps activity both on tour and during the off season to help navigate members in need of support. The advocate will represent the marching members in a fully confidential format in order to enable a more robust pathway for communication from the members directly to the board.
"I am unbelievably excited to join the Troopers Drum and Bugle Corps this summer as the Member Advocate and look forward to serving the greater good of the corps." -Evan Dixon
