Circle of Service
[Home] [Bylaws] [Clubs] [Dances] [Callers & Cuers] [Circle of Service] [News] [Forms] [History] [Club Dances]


This is a very prestigious award given to a person or couple who has been an active part of square dancing and has unselfishly volunteered their time and talents to the benefit and promotion of square dancing within the Federation. The fact that one is nominated is a very high honor whether or not they are selected to enter the Circle of Service.

The candidate(s) will be nominated on his/her own merit. This person(s) should be known throughout the Federation. The person(s) needs to be a member of the Illinois Federation at the time of their accomplishments. It is very important to provide as much information as possible, including dates, their position and what major accomplishments they have done. If a picture of the person(s) is available, please submit it at the same time.

There will be no limits or restrictions to the number of people approved each year. The IFSRDC Circle of Service will be financed by the Illinois Federation and new members will be presented at each May Festival.

The Committee consists of five voting members appointed by the Federation President. Nomination Forms for the IFSRDC Circle of Service must be submitted by April 1 each year.
