A Look Back at 2012

Father time clip artI would like to thank all of the instructors who have very graciously taught our dance lessons this year. We have had a great year and hope to do the same next year.

Our chapter board has been exceptional this year. Each member has gone above and beyond the call of duty and brought unique expertise to the board. I appreciate them very much.

As this year draws to a close, I would also like to thank each one of you for supporting our chapter of USA Dance. We have tried to make it the very best in our region.

We are looking forward to the New Year. We sincerely hope you will again join us for another great year in 2013.

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.
