This month, your PSDA Board is reviewing the PSDA bylaws.  They are badly outdated and need to be brought up into the 21st century.  Sheri Mankin, Carlene Combs and Larry Anderson will be reviewing the bylaws and making suggestions to the Board for updates.  We will also be reviewing the Marketing Material developed by the CallerLab association.  For any MBAs our there, this is a very well written marketing analysis of the Square Dance/Round Dance potential.  If anyone would like a copy, let me know and I'll forward it to you.  I highly suggest all Board members and PSDA club Presidents distribute it to their respective Boards and use it for discussions.

I think we need to start aggressively pursuing the retiring Baby-Boomers.  There is no reason we should not be able to double the number of dancing club members in the next 3-4 years if we focus our efforts in the right areas.  I'm asking all club members to let your club President and/or myself know of any opportunities you have heard of where the PSDA can put on a demo dance before the September classes start up.  Not only are these demo dances fun, we also have a chance to pick up new dancers in our club classes.

I'd really like to challenge all dancers to suggest any idea you can thank of that would make our dances more fun and get more dancers to attend.  I hop everyone has been getting their PSDA dancer Pass Cards filled in.  Phil and Judy LaBarbera submitted this great idea!!!

I've heard about times where 40 people would board a bus and visit some mystery clubs dance.  This sounds like some good fun to me.  I'd like more ideas like this.

So, get those creative thoughts going and let's make Square Dancing as popular as it was 20 years ago!!!

PSDA President
