The GLASSMEN are an Ohio non-profit youth organization. Funding for the group comes from summer performances, special events, bingo operations, individual donors, and several other projects headed up by the corps.
The GLASSMEN are governed by a Board of Directors, comprised of community business leaders, music educators, alumni, parents, and donors. Elections are held annually for these positions. The organization employs two full-time staff members - the Executive Director, and the Office Manager. The corps also employs a large design and instructional staff for the drum corps season.
