Peter Piazza indicated Ontario membership is now 2650; (down 40 from previous year). Membership is falling across the province. Canadian Society membership is down 5%.
Callers who applied for funding, and completed the caller school with Joe Uebelacker have received their Federation grants.
Howard Lander will investigate the possibility of advertising square dancing in the program of the Western Fair in London. Jean Lander will prepare a newsletter for distribution in early September.
Dan Roy would like videos and photos or general input for the Federation website. This request will be included in the newsletter.
Ontario Federation Logo
The Federation Logo is very old and the original file is nowhere to be found. We are looking for a high resolution copy of the file, or someone with talents to re-create the existing logo.
Plans for 2018 Convention are progressing. Associations need to urge members to register early. Callers should register by January for program to be prepared. Very few cloggers registered so far, so program may be cancelled. London Hotels are filling up fast.
Assigning of Officers to the Board positions
Incumbents agreed to retain their current positions. New member Barbara Englehart will assume the responsibility of secretary. Legal is vacant at this time.
