New Board Member Appointed

Portrait of Phil MotleyThe entire board wants to thank Phil Motley for serving not only on the board but also as DJ for the last few years. Although he has resigned from the board, he plans to continue his work as DJ in 2013. We appreciate Phil's willingness to serve us with his talents.

Phil's term on the board would have ended in December of 2013, so I have appointed Sherry Straley to complete Phil's unexpired term, beginning in January. Sherry has already visited one board meeting. We thank her for agreeing to serve.

In other board news, we have completed audits of the financial records for our 2012 Special Olympics competition and will send the report to the USA Dance national organization, as required.

Board Makes Plans Coming Year

Our chapter board of directors met October 24. We put together our dance themes and set dates for board meetings in 2013.

We are contacting people to will help us with an audit of the books for the Special Olympics competition. The audit takes place at the end of November and we must send results to the national treasurer of USA Dance.

Thanks, Dancers!

I want to take this time to thank all of our dancers who have come out to our dances this year. One year ago, we did not know if Fort Wayne Dancesport would continue, after a rough 2011. Thanks for your continued support this year. We expect to have a great year as a chapter of USA Dance in 2013.
