The majority of those attending the meeting agreed that co-sponsorship of a national convention is feasible and would
like to pursue the co-sponsorship of a convention.

It was agreed upon that each District President would approach each club in their district to solicit each clubs support for a National Square Dance Convention if conducted in Missouri. Each District President is to report whether or not their clubs or district will support a national convention in Missouri. Each district president is to take the information they received back to their clubs and respond back to JoAnn Miller (President of the Missouri Federation by November 6, 2010 or earlier if possible 417.881.7178 - E-Mail.

Funding does not seem to be an issue at this time.

If the majority of the districts approve participation, a bid chairman will be elected and he/she will prepare and submit a bid for the year 2015.
