Your Club News:
We have recently sent out email notifications and announced at our dances that the majority of our current Board Members are not going to continue on the Board in 2024.
Unfortunately the club hasn’t had any volunteers offer to join the board yet, again as most of the existing board is leaving, with the exception of 2 members willing to remain.
We keep hearing how important community and connection with others is to our well-being, both physical and emotional. As a Board Member, collaborating with other Board Members and our dancers to make dances happen is a very fun way to have that experience.
The existing board would be happy to answer any questions and help guide a new board member regarding their responsibilities.
Think about the opportunities that joining the Board would provide to you.
It’s been suggested that it would be helpful to see what board members do and how much time is involved.
The time required varies from month to month and by position, but most positions require no more than two or three hours, if that, each month, plus the hour or so for our monthly Zoom Board Meetings.
Each Board Member takes turns on the "Door Duty" where they take the admissions at dances and fill out the finance sheet for that particular dance.
