President's Corner


Well, here starts another new leadership team for the National Executive Committee. As one of the newer couples on the NEC, we hope we do honor and justice to the position, as it was totally unexpected at this stage on the board. We will do our best, always keeping the needs of the dancers in the forefront of our committee. We have many years of experience in the NEC members that can be called upon for help when needed. The 64th. NSDC in Springfield was deemed a success thanks to 4,000+ dancers attending. While this was increased from last year, we hope it is starting a trend to grow each year.


We have read a lot of positive feedback and have talked to a number of dancers that said it was a great convention, especially the ones on the post convention 6 day tour. A good example of positive feedback can be found on this website titled"Magic in Massachusetts" written by Gordon & Marianne King, committee members of the 66th. NSDC in Cincinnati, Ohio. A big thanks to the entire committee of the 64th. for a job well done. Their NEC advisors Dick & Linda Peterson & Ray & Sandy Hutchison can be proud.


We would also like to congratulate the bid committee from Georgia for a very sucessful & informative bid presentation. We look forward to Georgia in 2019. An intent to bid was also presented from Florida for 2021, but we really do need someone for 2020. If your state or federation is interested, please contact your NEC member assigned to your geographical area who will gladly help you get started.

Speaking of assigned areas, as the new presidents we have changed some of the state assignments and also phase advisor responsibilities. These should be updated soon on the NEC website.

Again thanks to the NEC for their confidence in selecting us to this position and we hope to meet their expectations. We also welcome any comments, suggestions, or complaints from you, the dancers, so we can be a more friendly NEC and not just the perceived "stuffy Green Suits," as some think.
