CSDS Newsletter ~ December 2020
Greetings, CSDS dancers ~ it's hard to believe we are in the final month of 2020, what a year it has been! At the December 3rd meeting of the Board of Directors, those in attendance unanimously agreed that CSDS will continue to not hold any in person events (Swing Swap, dances, workshop weekends) at least through the end of February 2021, following CDC and VDH guidelines. We miss dancing and seeing everyone and look forward to when it is safe for us to gather in person.

The next Board of Directors meeting is Thursday, January 14th at 6:30 pm EST via Zoom, during which time the 2021 officers (President, Secretary and Treasurer) will be elected. Please contact the Board if you have any questions/concerns.

Membership Renewals
Don't forget, in light of COVID-19, CSDS has reduced the membership fee to $5 for the time being. Take advantage of this low fee to renew your membership (or rejoin!), and support CSDS. Even if your membership doesn't expire anytime soon, another year will simply be added to the expiration date of your current membership. To renew your membership at the newly reduced fee, please visit the CSDS website. If you have any questions regarding the status of your membership, please contact Membership Coordinator Didi Jennings.
