|ASSDF Elected Board (2018)|
|ASSDF Operations Committee|
This page lists the current slate of officers, elected and appointed, for the ASSDF), as of Oct. 14, 2018. The slate of newly elected officers is posted as soon as possible after the ASSDF Fall Festival, in the print edition and e-Edition of Modern Square...and is also entered on the website The exceptions are if there is a change in officers during the year.
In a Letter From The Editor from past issues of The Modern Square, many of these dancers noted below have REPEATEDLY SERVED... some in one way or another for over 30 years...because it has been very difficult to find people wanting to serve as an officer. That is the reason that some of the ASSDF Officers look much like the ones from the year before...it's because, in most cases, THEY ARE!!
Also, there may be times that due to other circumstances, where officers have to resign their position early, are replaced for various reasons, or they don't want to serve again...and as a result, they can't serve another term. So, just because a position is currently filled, it does NOT necessarily mean that the individual currently serving in that officers position will still want to, or be able to serve again in the coming year.
Sadly, it's as if no one else wants to ''step up to the plate'' to serve...and ''those who complain should be the FIRST IN LINE to run for an officers position!!''. In most organizations, it's like 1% of the people are doing 99% of the work.
Many of these dancers have had to cut down their dancing involvement...both on and off the square dance floor...if not quit the hobby altogether...because of health issues... including yours truly. It doesn't cost anything but a trip to meetings that are scheduled every so often...and the price of the pleasures of the dance are paid by those who take responsibility. So, please consider giving back to this wonderful hobby...if you'd like to volunteer to serve, please contact one of the Executive Board Officers noted below.
In short, while there are other things in life besides square and round dancing...it is up to the dancer to keep the hobby alive...it can't do it on its own. But, if we can't get individuals to serve, then there's no need to keep the ASSDF in existence. In other words, ''if we can't get the workers, there's no need for the bees.'' This was one reason for the change in the ASSDF Bylaws.
Those who think that ''the work will magically get done'' at events (whether for their club, organization, or otherwise), and all they have to do is show up for the dance, then leave when they feel like it...are in for a rude awakening. These are the takers instead of the givers, and they are part of the reason that this (and most other hobbies), are dying.
Also, there may be times, where circumstances beyond a dancers control force them to resign a previously elected or appointed officers position...or in the case of ''not doing their job'', they may be terminated from their position by the remainder of the ASSDF Officers. In this case, replacements are put in place as soon as possible.
With the change in the ASSDF Bylaws that were approved at the 2016 Fall Festival, the listing on this page has been CHANGED as well. Job Descriptions of the various positions are in the Standing Rules. You will need the Adobe Acrobat Reader to view/print the file(s). Note that if you are on dial-up or DSL internet, it will take some time to download the files.
As a side note, for the ASSDF OFFICERS (Elected Or Appointed) ONLY, I will, upon request, print up business cards, like the one noted below, just above the list of officers.
They will need to contact me with what they want on them (it usually will be taken from The Modern Square, and/or this page,
and how many they want. These are done FREE OF CHARGE, as a DONATION to the ASSDF.
