I have heard some concerns (as well as voiced my own) of ownership of the 
dance manual, acknowledgements of whose work the manual is, and copyright 
laws.  I think we need to consider doing a publication permission form.  
This way the dance manual can stay intact, regardless of who is currently 
maintaining it and who the proctor is, and we can also follow society 
publication laws.


I am suggesting something like the following.
