|Board And Delegates Meetings|
The ASSDF has membership meetings; where the state square and round dance clubs send at least two (2) delegates to the meeting, to discuss various issues related to square and round dancing, and with the ASSDF. Every club that has paid their dues to the ASSDF for the current year (that is due Jan. 1 of each year), should send two (2) delegates (as noted above) for voting privileges. The ASSDF can NOT conduct business without club representatives. Note that callers and cuers can NOT serve as delegates at the meetings.
There is usually a Spring meeting prior to the Rebel Reelers Toad Suck Daze Dance, and the Fall meeting is on the Saturday afternoon during the ASSDF Fall Festival...plus, other meetings may be held at other times during the year. They also have board meetings for the ASSDF Officers, so they can conduct business of the organization.
While votes on issues may not always be unanimous, it is a chance for dancers to have their voices heard...and to discuss how to keep the hobby of square and round dancing alive.
Please note that you don't have to be a delegate to come just to vote. The ASSDF Board wants your input on what is happening with your State Federation. Those clubs who wish to place a bid for upcoming Fall Festival dances should prepare to present their bids at the meeting.
Unfortunately, unless I can arrange a workaround, due to my involvement in central Arkansas with Skywarn Severe Weather Operations, and Amateur Radio License Examinations...unless the meeting is set for a ''non-exam weekend'', or if severe weather is in the state, I (as Circulation Manager and Webmaster) may NOT be able to attend...sorry for any inconvenience.
However, the way the dance dates are scheduled, I usually will make the two delegates meetings noted above, and the dances that follow them. While questions about subscriptions to The Modern Square or the ASSDF Website are NOT answered at the meetings (to save time), handouts are available for the Delegates Meeting, and for the Donated Subscriptions, which should cover most questions. You will need the Adobe Acrobat Reader to view/print the files.
