2013 in Revue
Hi to all Members & Registered Teachers,
Here we are at the end of another great year! On behalf of the TDF Board of Directors & Examiners we would like to thank you all for your support throughout 2013 & congratulations to all for the hard work & effort you put into your students preparation for their examinations & Awards Day. I personally would like to thank the TDF Board of Directors & Examiners for their amazing support throughout this year.
As you know, in 2012, TDF partly separated from the FATD Ballroom faculty (BDF) by having our own bank account. This enabled TDF to grow in many ways as we no longer needed to financially support BDF. We were thrilled to be able to offer Scholarships to the value of $12,500 at the Awards Days & continue with the growth of the Website. Throughout 2013 it became increasingly difficult to work amicably & productively with the BDF Directors. TDF’s financial security was again at risk. Your directors decided the only way forward for TDF was to leave the umbrella of FATD & form our own Company.
So it is with great excitement we give you the news that of 1st January 2014 we will now be known as
Australasian Dance Association Ltd.
We will be totally independent (a public company limited by guarantee) & able to fulfil our dreams for the association, members & students. Through negotiations we have managed to retain all syllabi & anything pertaining to this. All FATD qualifications transfer over without any changes. Basically it is a name change. We are currently working on the new logo & branding. This will carry across all the syllabi, medals, certificates & the website.
Changes - Email address - Website address - Banking details - these have not been finalised at printing so will be sent asap to everyone.
PO Box mailing address & phone/fax numbers will remain unchanged.
2013 in Revue will be emailed & posted to ensure everyone receives a copy. Please ensure you notify the office of a change in your postal & email address. As information is sent in group emails please check your spam or junk mail for any missing notifications from the office.
