CCD STEERING COMMITTEE Meeting - Minutes
July 14, 2002
3:05 pm CCD Steering Committee meeting convened
in the home of Lilian Bryan.
Steering Committee members present:
Bruce Tarnopolski, Jan Kent, Lalah Hightower, Rob Harper, and Lilian
Guests: Harriette Liske, Roger McLain,
Kevin Liske, Christin Whittington and Ann Robinson.
MINUTES of the last meeting on June 18th
were adopted without change.
WEB-SITE SURVEY: Seth has designed a
web-site survey to gather feedback from SC members on out-of-town dance
bands and callers. Bruce made a motion that the survey go on list-serve
and be available to all dancers. The results of the survey will be made
known only to Seth and the SC members. This motion was seconded and
CCD ELECTIONS: There will be elections
held this October to fill places of
three SC members (Scott Russell, George Snyder, Brian Baker) whose term
will be up. The terms go by calendar year and therefore the new term
will begin in January. It was proposed that the new CCD Treasurer, Harriette
Liske, become a SC member, which will leave two openings on the committee.
Bruce proposed the following election procedures, according to our bylaws:
nominating committee will be established. The members of this committee
be chosen by the SC. The nominating committee will attract and nominate
candidates. The nominating committee will then present the slate of
members to the dance membership, who will then vote the new SC members
in. We discussed the pros and cons of having a married couple on the
NOVEMBER DANCE THEME:
Joseph Steinhausers suggestion of the "Dr. Seuss" theme
further and the title, suggested by Joseph, GREEN LEGS AND JAM was adopted.
We discussed a logo for the dance, depicting a Dr. Seuss hat with green
legs. To be entirely certain on the legality of using the Dr. Seuss
theme in text and images, Bruce will check with a patent lawyer regarding
the copyright laws. Lalah suggested buttons of a hat with legs dangling
down. Christin will compose the text for the registration form.
TREASURERS REPORT: Harriette will
open a new account for CCD and take care of all necessary business.
FREE DANCE/OPEN COMMITTEE MEETING:
Bruce suggested a free Friday night dance in October to be combined
meeting with all the dance membership present. We will serve refreshments,
potluck style. The short meeting would take place during the break.
Bruce wants to take this opportunity to make the dance community aware
of CCD accomplishments during the year and thank people who have given
support to the dance community, especially local bands and callers and
outgoing SC members. At this time, the official elections of the new
SC members will be held. We will announce the specific needs for help
for the November Dance weekend. Bruce will ask the dance community for
feedback. No other (outside) announcements will be made this evening
to keep the meeting short.
Bruce suggested we get the Jump in the Skillet band to play that evening.
CCD SPEAKERS RENTAL: the members of
the SC decided that, as a rule, we will not rent out the CCD speakers.
THEME DANCES: Bruce suggested that we
have occasional Friday night theme dances, such as Halloween, Valentine
and other special themes.
NEXT MEETING: will be held Sunday, August
11, at 11:00 oclock at Lilian
Bryans house (2355 Virginia Place 404-266-1963). As always,
of the dance community are cordially invited to the meeting.
The meeting was adjourned at 4:30 p.m.
Respectfully submitted by Lilian Bryan, CCD Recording Secretary.
