Bingo approval

All bingo workers must be at least 18 years old and cleared through the Georgia Bureau of Investigation.

To obtain clearance to work bingo events:
1. Complete the Personal History and Background Form B02 and give it to the Band Bingo Coordinator, Jenni West. She will attach a cover letter to this and forward this to the GBI.
Here are answers to some questions on the B02 form that can be confusing:
Name of Organization of which this personal history is a part (include Post/Lodge/Club No.) Wheeler High School Band Booster Club
Are you a member of this organization? Yes
How long have you been a member of this Post?Lodge/Club? [Enter how long you have been a Booster member]
Your position in organization? Booster Club Member
Salary? None: Volunteer 
Type of Membership (Regular, Auxilliary, Honorary, Associate, other) Regular

The fee is $36.25 and will be reimbursed as a credit on your band account when you work your first Bingo event.

Fingerprint2. Sign up for finger printing at the Georgia Applicant Processing Services (GAPS) web site.  Click “Single Applicant Registrations” to complete the screen.
Save your registration ID number (or print that screen).

3. Go to a “print location” to get fingerprinted.

4. The band bingo coordinator will be notified when you are approved, usually in two weeks. If you haven’t heard anything three weeks after being fingerprinted, let the coordinator know.
