Now, who served on past AIFD boards?
Last week outgoing board member Mike Revesz pondered when the last time was that he served on an AIFD board. So he asked to see the list of former board members. Embarrassingly enough, no such list could be found. Man
scratching head

Having a list of former board members would be pretty cool. So we'd like to tap the collective memories of the folk dance community to create such a list. We can then keep it online for easy reference. Please help us fill in the blanks by checking our very incomplete roster of past board members AIFD history and emailing us names, years, and board positions that you served or remember others serving. You may have old emails, newsletters, or board documents you can reference. Or maybe you just have a really good memory. The list goes back to 1984, but don't let that stop you from going back even further. Thanks!!

Ooops .. the newsletter emailed on 5/30 had a typo in the email address embedded or "emailing us". The address has been corrected in the online version.
