i am interested in hearing about different methods of dance group
i am aware of two basic methods: 1) elected board method, which is
responsible for making all decisions by vote and 2)the beneficent dictator
method (b.d.). the b.d. may or may not have people that act as a board who
are appointed, but in the end all decisions are those of he b.d.
re: elected board voting methods: there are a couple of variations for the
voting process: 1) dancers get the right to vote by buying a group
membership, or 2) whoever is at the dance on the day of the election gets to
vote. (my feeling is that regularly attending dancers ought to be the ones
voting, but i haven't figured out a good way to track attendance)
a side issue of the elected board method is how the positions are
established, sometimes individuals run for positions (eg president,
secretary, treasurer, booker, etc). in other groups a certain number of
people are elected to the board and the board decides the different
are there other methods or permutations?
any comments on the pro or cons of these different methods?
