Leaders Guild News and Update
Take a look now at our newly redesigned website and banner in full color format
and with a Dutch language version and log-in added. Our new banner appears at the top of this newsletter. This is the first major redesign of our site since 2011.
The language menu is now located at the right side of the drop down menu at the top of each page.
Our website is on line in English, Spanish, German, Russian and Dutch, and this newsletter goes out in all of these languages twice annually. Special thanks to Malika Cieremans for her wonderful translation work on the Dutch version of the website. The Dutch version is nearly complete.
Let's spice it up with Facebook postings!
We invite you to join the
DUP International Facebook group
to post your photos, videos, articles, events info and more of interest to other leaders. The icon appears at the far right side of the drop down menu for handy access. Facebook is the easiest way to share all sorts of information about your work with the Dances. Please keep all postings for and about the Dances of Universal Peace. Multiple languages are welcome!

Leaders Guild Fees Increase
Beginning January 1, 2016 Leaders Guild fees will increase from $30 to $36. This fees increase is accompanied by a 22% reduction in our budget, which began in 2015. These two measures together will bring DUP IN's annual budget very nearly into balance, in accordance with our

The Guidance Council would like to congratulate and
acknowledge all the Walks and Dance leaders who thus

months through October 9, 2015.
