USA Dance Brochures: Marty distributed handouts from an Iowa USA Dance chapter that she visited.

Terry offered to print copies for the Showcase.
Showcase: Lib gave a Showcase update and discussed challenges of getting someone to coordinate food. Lib suggested we hire person to manage the food during the Showcase. Jerry proposed we pay up to two people with a budget of $60 to help manage the food. Terry 2nd the motion. The motion passed unanimously. Terry and Lib are working on finalizing and printing the programs which Lib will assemble.
Dance Venues: There was general discussion without any decision. Trudy suggested partnering with Bonnie's group that was formerly Horizon. Other possible venues were Weaver School since it is an arts magnet school, Prolific Park and the Greensboro Parks and Recreation Department. The goal is to find a location on a Friday or Saturday evening that does not conflict with other dances.
17 Days Festival (Sept 9-25): The showcase has been featured in the 17 days brochure and related advertising and on NPR.
USA Dance (National) – there are ongoing issues with national USA Dance leadership and upcoming elections. Terry will continue to write about these in the Newsletter and encourage member voting.
Black Tie Planning: The Board decided April 22, 2017 is our first choice and the 29th is our second choice. (was Terry or Charlie going to check on this?)
Carolina Fall Classic: Linda Jackson is looking for volunteers. This will be announced at the September dance. Historically, our chapter has been a sponsor of the CFC and we have many members participating. Marty moved that we give $750 in support of the CFC. Trudy 2nd the motion, which passed unanimously. Charlie will send a check.
Adjournment: The meeting was adjourned at 2:15 pm.
