AGM

The 2017 DanceSport New Zealand AGM was held in Wellington on Sunday 12 February. The positions of President and Treasurer were up for re-election this year. Congratulations to returning President, Samdra Maxfield, and Treasurer, Keryn Russ. Other officers were re-appointed unopposed.

The President's report included some of the latest news from the WDSF, including the announcement recently that the 2018 Buenos Aires Youth Olympics would include the dancesport discipline Breakdance. This is a great step towards inclusion of other dance styles in the Olympic Games.
Other WDSF news was the formation of the Presidential Task Force by new President Lukas Hinder which presented its first White Paper on Competition Manipulation. The full report can be found on the WDSF website along with exciting videos of WDSF events around the globe.
Thanks to all who attended the meeting for their support. All reports and other documents for the meeting can be found here
