Aux dires de Jerri Goldberg, un des sept membre fondateur de l'AICGLDCW, l'objectif original de notre organisation était de favoriser la communication et le réseautage. According to Jerri Goldberg, one of the seven IAGLCWDC's Founding Members, the original purpose of our organization was "to foster communication and networking".
De là, l'établissement de colloques annuels aux fins des divers objectifs de nos statuts: This resulted in the establishment of an Annual Convention with the purpose of fulfilling our greater list of purposes as stated in our bylaws:
  1. Promouvoir
  1. To promote the culture of and provide education in country western dancing, activities and music to all persons without regard to age, sex, gender or gender identity, religion, national or cultural origin, sexual orientation, disability or HIV status.
  1. Fournir
  1. To provide opportunities to its individual members for education in country western dancing as well as to provide a forum for the exchange of ideas among the member clubs.
  1. Soutenir
  1. To support and encourage the growth of its membership and improve communication among the member clubs.
  1. Être un organisme non de clubs indépendants.
  1. To be a non-governing body of individual clubs.
Et ces colloques sont aussi l'occasion de danser et de s'amuser. The by-product of all this is that we get to dance and have fun together.
Impliquez-vous, participez et surtout, amusez-vous! So join in! Get involved! And above all, have fun doing it!
