The DFO invites you to make a difference in the
regional traditional dance and music community by joining our board of
directors. It's a great group of people to work with!
Through the work of an amazing and dedicated group of volunteers, we provide at least 18 dance series and special events throughout the year; and we strive to continue to build a strong non-profit organization to support these activities. Thanks to the efforts of past and current board members over the last few years, we have also greatly expanded our work with other organizations to plan and present traditional dance and music events and reach new audiences.
Board members meet about 9 times a year between September and June, and meetings are currently held in Troy, NY. Board members are required to work on at least one of our committees which meet as needed (often via online conferencing). Committees currently include: DFO-YO! (Youth Outreach), Fundraising, Liaison (which provides support to dance organizers), Membership, Outreach, and Program.
Please contact John Guay, DFO President, at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 518-692-8612 if you are interested in learning more and receiving an application. The deadline to submit an application is Friday, April 10, 2015.
