North Texas Traditional Dance Society

Based in Dallas, Texas, NTTDS promotes understanding and appreciation of American folk dancing, its music, its history, and related folklore. We are a group affiliate of the Country Dance and Song Society.

The elected officers of the club are President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer, Membership Coordinator, and Newsletter Editor. The Historian is appointed by the board. An Assistant Treasurer can also be appointed by the board.

The Board of Directors consists of the current officers, plus the officers from the previous year, plus any "Members At Large" appointed by the Board.

NOTE: Because we stopped dancing in March 2020 because of the coronavirus pandemic, there was no election of new officers in Dec 2020 or 2021. The 2020 officers will continue in their current roles until we we decide when to have another election.

Officer History

Up through 2014, elections were held every September, with the positions becoming effective immediately. In the table below, the Year corresponds to the September in which the elections were held. Starting in 2015, elections take place in December, and the positions will become effective in the following January, so the officers serve for a calendar year. The 2014 officers will serve a few extra months, from Sept 2014 to Dec 2015. For 2016 and later, the Year in the table corresponds to the year of service, not the year of election.
