Officers and Board Members


MHAF Winter Storm’s success is due in large part to the dedication of its Volunteer Board of Directors, and the various Piping & Drumming Committee Members and Key Volunteers. They have all competed as soloists or have been members of a pipe band. This perspective helps determine MHAF’s direction, giving pipers and drummers the best educational, competitive, and entertainment experience possible during the Winter Storm Weekend. Please make suggestions to, or communicate with, Board Members or Committee Chairs by e-mailing them. Contact
