Instructions for Election Forum
Thursday, September 15, 2016
The 2016 Candidates Forum is a USA Dance Members only discussion forum. The forum is intended to allow one-site access for members to ask the candidates in the USA Dance election some questions.
Each question, or topic, should be directed at a particular candidate, a set of candidates (such a DanceSport Council Delegates) or all candidates.
Non-candidate members should not be answering or commenting on other non-candidate member's questions.
All participants must follow USA Dance Policies, in particular, the Abuse and Harassment Policy Guidelines:
"All members of the organization, as well as parents, spectators and other invitees are expected to observe and adhere to the following principles.
1. Abuse or harassment of any kind will not be tolerated within the organization. This means USA Dance does not accept physical, sexual, emotional or verbal abuse, harassment or similar misconduct from any person towards athletes, staff, coaches, officials, volunteers, parents, spectators or any other persons while they are participating in or preparing for events or activities conducted under the protection and support of USA Dance."
The moderators are the members of the 2016 Nominations and Elections Committee. The moderators will refrain to the greatest extent possible from editing or deleting comments, but, as we all know, social media sites can really be nasty so at times they must be strongly moderated in order to protect all participants.
