The association is a nonprofit group, organized for the following specific purposes: 1. Arrange and fund raise for local and out-of-town competitions, festivals, public performances, summer school or workshops to increase a student’s appreciation and interest in dance. 2. Carry on other educational programs in order to increase knowledge in dance; and 3. Foster goodwill and sportsmanship, and provide opportunities for self-development in the field of dance.
PERMITTED USES FOR MONIES RAISED: entry fees, workshop fees, travel expenses, costumes, shoes, videos, pictures, private lessons, etc, or others related expenses with the approval of our Artistic Director, Laura Pascolo McRury.
THE NET PROFITS FROM FUNDRAISING VENUES ARE DISPENSED AS FOLLOWS: 5% to the coordinator of the fundraiser, 5% to the treasurer of the IAPAA, 10% to the general expense account and 80% to the individual member (dancer).
CHAIRPERSON/PRESIDENT: The I.A.P.A.A. does not have a formal board set in place. All fundraising endeavours must be approved by Laura Pascolo McRury, owner and Artistic Director of the International Dance Academy.
TREASURER – A volunteer is required to act as Treasurer. This volunteer must be associated with the International Dance Academy either as a parent or faculty member.
SECRETARY – A volunteer is needed to take notes during our meetings. A copy of the meetings is then emailed to those present at meeting, and also posted on the IAPAA bulletin board at the studio.
COORDINATOR OF INDIVIDUAL FUNDRAISERS: This position always changes. Parents who bring forth an idea to Laura McRury, artistor director of International Dance Academy, are encouraged to act as the coordinator. One incentive for acting as coordinator is to earn extra funds towards their child’s individual fundraising account, remember 5% of all fundraising profit goes to the coordinator. We welcome new ideas.
HOW DO I GET FUNDS RELEASED FROM MY CHILD’S ACCOUNT: Your account balance is confidential, only you and the treasurer have your account balance. For this reason, we ask that you purchase and pay for the supplies which you need, then ask for the I.A.P.A.A. Money Release Form, available through the front office of our Studio, fill it out, the director of IDA will sign it, and once the treasurer verifies that your account has sufficient funds then a cheque will be made out to you the parent/guardian; it’s that simple. If you have an outstanding balance with International Dance Academy, firstly that amount must be paid in full to International Dance Academy, before any funds can be released directly to student’s parent/guardian.
REGISTERED MEMBERS OF THE I.A.P.A.A.: All students actively registered with the International Dance Academy are members of the International Academy Performing Arts Association. Should a student cease to be registered with the International Dance Academy, their individual fundraising account can be assigned to another active student (deadline for transfer: 1 year). If we do not hear from you, in written form, within that time frame, then your individual fundraising account would be transferred into the general expense account of IAPAA.
