"Message from the President"
January 24, 2017

Thoughts and prayers...
Go out to the family of Ed Fafard who passed away at the beginning of this month. Ed was a long time supporter of SEMCA, the last position he held before retiring was Vice President. His many years of support and contributions to SEMCA will be missed.

As I have mentioned in a few posts these last months, SEMCA has been struggling in its Executive Board. I was getting very worried. I know how hard it is to find people willing to take on (in most cases) yet another commitment. I put it out to the board to get the word out. The concern, MY concern, was that if we did not find anyone to fill the key positions needed to run the organization we would have to dissolve...
Thankfully, we are blessed to have dancers within the community who are willing to take on just one more thing.
Carol Cerreto joins SEMCA as its Treasurer. She brings with her a wealth (no pun intended) of experience and a quiet but strong demeanor. I have worked with Carol for many years and am very happy and grateful to have her on board.
Vice President Pat Anthony stepped up and took on the role of Secretary. She very graciously agreed to hold on to both positions until such a time that we could fill one or the other. We were very lucky to have Pat join the board last year, and even more so now that she is willing to step up and take on so much to keep SEMCA running.
Having said that, Pat held both positions for approximately 4 days before I was approached by Joan Lein. I have worked with Joan on both the club level and the organization level for many years. She is another dancer who comes to us with years of experience and a strong desire to help. Due to an error on my part (aka I forgot quite honestly) Joan had asked to join the board as Secretary when Jean Stahl stepped down. When she approached me again at a dance this Saturday I suggested she speak with Pat, so that between the two of them they could decide which position they would prefer for themselves. I had an answer in less than 2 minutes. Joan joins as Vice President, and Pat will continue on as Secretary.
I cannot tell you how blessed I feel SEMCA is to have so many new people on its board - strong hard experienced workers who will bring new ideas and perspectives to the group.
So it's a new year for SEMCA, and we begin it solidly.
