Call for Nominations for ECDC Membership

Background

In 2010 a Restructuring Committee for the FSGW English Country Dance community was established, and with community input, developed plans for formalizing the management of the dance. The management group is now known as the English Country Dance Committee (ECDC). The Restructuring Committee recently completed its work and the current ECDC is now moving to put the new management structure into effect, including soliciting nominations for membership on the Committee.

The ECDC currently consits of Liz Donaldson, Roger Broseus, Stephanie Smith, Tom Spilsbury, and Will Strang.

Call for Nominations

In order to welcome new people into leadership positions, the ECDC has developed a process to bring interested members of the FSGW ECD community onto the ECDC and gradually rotate current members off of the Committee. In order to provide continuity and historical knowledge, the current ECDC members plan to rotate off over a three year period. Liz and Roger will rotate off this year (2014), followed by two more next year, and the last current member the following year.

The Committee has created a document defining the ECDC structure and responsibilities of Committee members (view / download - PDF format). Further, a Nominating Committee (NC) has been selected, consisting of Liz Donaldson, Laura Schultz and Tom O'Brien.
