Board Elections to be Held July 21st During Monthly Dance

We will be holding board elections at approximately 10:30pm on July 21st during the monthly dance at the YWCA.   Anyone who is an active member in good standing (dues paid) is eligible to vote and to run for a board position.  There are several positions being vacated and several board members interested in changing to new positions.  The way we hold elections is that the board recommends a slate of officers to the membership for a vote.

The current SwingColumbus board hereby presents this slate of officers for your consideration:

  • President:  Gail Clendenin
  • Events Chair:  vacant
  • Marketing Chair:  Devon Martinelli
  • Performance Chair:  Shannon Varner
  • Treasurer:  Dan Hoy
  • Music Chair:  Mark Calkins
  • Instruction Chair:  Erik Hernandez

At this time we do not have a candidate for the events chair, so there would be no vote associated with the position (only 6 voting members) and duties would be shared by other current and past members of the board until the position can be filled.

You can see the current board here.   If you would like to become a member of SwingColumbus, you can do so via our registration page.  Memberships are based on calendar year, Jan-Dec 2012.  More info on this page.

If you would like to become more involved with SwingColumbus, but you’re not sure you’re ready for board level commitment, please let us know!   There are many ways to help out through volunteering at registration tables, on event committees, or by lending your talents in graphic design, movie making, Quickbooks, or something else.   We can always use help, and we’re always looking for future board members.  Email us at and let us know what you can do!
