A Vision for USA Dance, Inc.
The mission of USA Dance, Inc. is to improve the quantity and quality of dance in the United States. A clear vision to meet this mission is needed. I propose a 3 leg vision as follows:
- Publicize the missions of officers and committees and measure their efficacy.
- Provide well publicized national elections which guarantee high participation.
- Develop transparent and coherent policies to streamline national operations.
- Clearly communicate how an individual's membership fees are divided between competitive, social and educational activities at all organization levels: chapter, district, national.
- Conduct annual national membership meetings at a national event with the greatest number voting members attending.
- Ensure member access to appropriate records including national reports and meeting minutes.
- Clearly communicate a consistent mission statement throughout the organization and on all legal documents.
- Embrace individuals/organization with successful dance programs both inside and outside of USA Dance.
- Objectively measure individual proficiency appropriate to various styles of dance for teaching and performance.
- Incorporate technology and infrastructure to facilitate detailed and accurate record keeping, fosters transparency and provides an early warning to chapters when national policy changes can affect chapter finances.
- Implement a procurement/development process for technology which is open, transparent and provides the best value to USA Dance.
- Incorporate technologies that facilitate collaboration within and between chapters without unnecessarily burdening volunteers, officers and board members.
- All technology associated programs should be evaluated after one year to see if they meet their stated objectives. There should be a written report filed with the secretary and available for inspection by chapter and national boards.
The above statement is the opinion of the signers below and does not represent the opinion of USA Dance, Inc national or its affiliates. If you wish to add your name as a supporter, please email your name chapter number and board position to Mark Garber
