ADCC seeks new Executive Director

Description:

The Association of Dance Competitions & Conventions (The ADCC) is a nonprofit 501(c)(6) national association serving the dance competition industry. The Association has 35 current dance competition owner members and is growing quickly with an operating budget of $325,000. The 11-member Board of Directors is stable, well-functioning and excited to work with the new ED to move the association to the next level.

The ADCC operates several programs including: Annual Meeting (planned for September 24-26, 2019 in Charleston, SC), Studio of Excellence Awards, College Dance Scholarships, Industry and Lifetime Achievement Awards, Business Partnerships, and a Group Buying discount program. Each year, The ADCC also publishes three summer issues of The Competitive Advantage magazine.

Currently in its 5th year, The ADCC is replacing its founding director with a part-time Executive Director who will work remotely from their own home office as an independent contractor. The ED is supported by a part-time contracted administrative/marketing assistant who has worked with the organization for the past four years and is familiar with all systems and processes presently used. The ADCC is Florida-based and would like to remain a Florida nonprofit corporation but the Board is open to moving it to another state if necessary.
