Although resisting any attempts to get me on the committee officially I am often invited to meetings when the business to be addressed impacts the dancing classes or the website or when an event is approaching that involves dancing. Because the new dancing season is starting next week (hurray) and the St Andrew's Ball organization is already in it's final phase and advertising and ticket printing is the next order of the day, I got to attend. It is always interesting seeing a committee in action - the ones that work best, in my opinion (and this is just my opinion of course), are ones where every member has their own specific role, does their job with minimum interference and fuss - and just uses the committee to report back on the result - it was interesting to see how much our very active and effective committee members followed that mold. An enormous amount of work has been done over the summer - discussions were friendly, profitable and to the point - and if it went on a very long time it was because they were enjoying themselves (and not because one person was pontificating for ever.... we've all been there haven't we, and horrifyingly sometimes it was me !! ;-) ) So the upshot is I was impressed, and I'm sure everyone else will be when they see the results - there are interesting things on the horizon, but my lips are sealed!
