CASCADE CROSSFIRES BY-LAWS

 

CASCADE CROSSFIRES DETAILED BOARD AND COMMITTEE JOB DESCRIPTIONS

Cascade Crossfires is a board-run club. The club has been set up to be run with a minimum effort by members and officers. We are very informal and welcome suggestions and help from all interested dancers—members and non-members. Everyone should contribute some help to the club, even if it is just helping to set up for a dance, distributing flyers at dances, or taking photos once a year. The club will be even more successful if members express their preferences for the types of activities and dances you would like to attend and then participate in those activities.

 

There are specific duties assigned to Cascade Crossfires officers. However, some duties are either unofficial or can be easily delegated to members not elected to the board. The full list of tasks is found by following the link above.

 

EASY, LOW-COMMITMENT HELP YOU CAN OFFER THE CLUB—ONGOING NEEDS:

Please review the list below and find a way to contribute to the club. Some examples of one-time or low-commitment tasks include:

o    Design flyers and other materials/mediums to increase attendance at dances, workshops, and other activities.

(A member is doing this, but we welcome members’ contributions to make the materials more compelling.)

o    Maintain a list of venues and/or see that in-person and/or materials are made available for promoting the Crossfires at dances, workshops, council dances, special dances (Moxie, Apple Blossom Fest, Council Dances, Circle 8).

(A member is doing this, but we could use help updating the list and distributing flyers.)

o    Promote Angel participation at lessons and dances.

Ask plus dancers you know to help with lessons and come to workshops. Not a big time commitment and you don’t have to sign up—just do it!!

o    Maintain the Crossfire website on a regular basis 

(A member has volunteered to be the “Webmaster.”) Let the board know if you would like to see some information added to the website. Also, tell other dancers that we have a website and that we try to keep the information current.

o    Take photos of club lessons, dances, activities to use on website and promotions.

You can volunteer to be the “Club Photographer” or just bring your camera and offer to share your photos with the club.

o    Help plan club activities (campouts, picnics, caravans, unofficial caravans, joint activities with other clubs, etc).

You could merely make suggestions to a board member about an activity you would like to see happen or you could plan an event for the club. You could offer to head a committee or just act alone. The board welcomes suggestions and help in offering fun dancing and other activities.

o    Set up dance hall for lessons & dances [This has been done as a board; whoever gets there first.]

o     Open the hall

o     Assure dance floor is clean

o     Set up hall (chairs, help caller setup stage). Decorate for special dances.

o     Set up kitchen, including water, coffee, tea

o     Bring food

o     Sweep the floor and put everything away after a dance, workshop, or lesson.

Once the dancehall is open, any member can help setup or cleanup after the dance. All help is welcome!

o    Volunteer to be a delegate or alternate delegate to the Mt. Baker Council. This involves attending a monthly evening meeting on the 1st Wednesday of the month in Marysville. The delegate represents the club (votes) at the council meeting and shares what is going on with the club, sharing dates, flyers, and other information with the other clubs.

An alternate attends when the delegate can’t attend the meeting. You could team up with another member and share the duties, if that works for you. Also note that some delegates car-pool from the Seattle area up to the meeting, so you may not need to drive, if that is an issue.
