DanceSport BC & SnowBall's Future

The DanceSport BC Board of Directors has received a letter of resignation from Carolyn Huggett as President of the Association, effective August 2, 2010. There was no reason given for her resignation. Vice President Pinky Wong has assumed the role of interim President on a temporary basis until DanceSport BC holds its Annual General Meeting on September 5, 2010 at the Travelodge in Richmond. The AGM package and more information on the AGM will follow by mail shortly to all members.

At the Special General Meeting, requested by DanceSport BC members and held on March 6, 2010, the proposed motion to move the SnowBall Classic to the ice rink at the Langley Events Centre was defeated by an overwhelming majority. Members present and those represented by proxy voted to hold the 2011 SnowBall Classic in downtown Vancouver.

As you may be aware, the entire SnowBall Classic Committee resigned at the 2010 SnowBall event due to unhappy differences of opinion between several individuals on the DanceSport BC Board of Directors and the SnowBall Committee. To date, no suitable candidates have stepped forward to Chair the 2011 event. SnowBall Classic's future is in your hands. We are currently six months away from the tentative 2011 date of February 4 to 6.

DanceSport BC is calling for a SnowBall Planning Meeting on Monday, August 16, 2010, at or about 6:30 pm. This meeting is open to anyone interested in helping in any capacity with the 2011 SnowBall Classic. Please send an e-mail to pinky@dancesportbc.com if you are interested in attending. Once we have the number of attendees confirmed, we will provide you with a location for the meeting. If you would like to help with the organization of this event, but cannot attend the meeting, please also let us know!
