I am sorry, but I am going to disagree on the chair idea. I feal that
we have been kept on track and have been addressing what was
nessessary. I think that a chair at this point is added
administration and unnessisary. We are a group of adults that is
willing to discuss what we need to accomplish. This guidence is not
nessisary at this point.

My idea when I brought this idea up to Guillaume was that we would
keep the number participating in the disscussion small. We are
looking at foming a guild that will start the affect how dance is run
in the kingdom in a major way. Thus I contacted the dance guild heads
in the kingdom, those people who already have experience and are in
charge of dance or have been in charge. So I feal that the parcentage
of dance teachers on this list is vey high. And what will work.

This formt might be a good idea, btu hey, we are dance teachers and we
don't want to be told to do. And if you can keep a list to focus on
one thread at a time good luck. Part of this list is so that we can
all communicate and get things finished quikly and efficiently. So we
do not have to bog down a meeting. And so far that has worked. I
think we are the dissision makers of dance for the kingdom. Think
about it, you teach what you want to teach, noy what your A&S officer
wants you to teach. We should keep the formum as it is at present.
We have gone along way to improve what we want from a kingdom guild.
I would hate to see us lose sight of the guild because we are trying
to have the whole kingdom agree on each topic.
I am proud of what we have done so far and am glad to say that I am an
