Welcome to NORTEX


Hello NORTEX Family,

Thank you for attending the 2019 NORTEX Round-Up, Deep in the Heart of Texas. What a fun time! Thank you to NTCA for a great Callers Cavalcade; to Peggy & Bascom Kemp and Vicki & Ray Spray, your Round-Up Co-Chairs, for serving and selecting hard-working committee chairs and to the many clubs, callers, cuers and dancers who donated their time and talent to make this event a success. All your efforts are more appreciated than you know.

Please plan to attend our next NORTEX Business Meeting at Swingtime Center on Sunday, November 17, 2019 at 2:00 pm. Clubs, be sure to let your Area Vice President know of any changes in your Club President. This is very important, as it helps us communicate with the correct club officer. Delegates, please arrive early to sign in at the appropriate Area Vice President table, and help conduct the business of our association. Each club has three voting delegates at the NORTEX business meetings; one is the Club President.

This business meeting begins the NORTEX election cycle, with the presentation of the 2020 Nominating Committee members for approval by the NORTEX delegates. This committee is responsible for putting into nomination, at the February 2020 business meeting, the slate of NORTEX Officers for the next year, 2020- 2021. Additionally, the 2020 Benefit Dance Co-Chairs and the Round-Up Chairs will be presented for delegate approval. Please see the preliminary meeting agenda on page 5 of this Promenade.

November is the beginning of the holiday season. As we all head into this busy time, stop and reflect on all that has happened during this past year. Treasure the memories made, remember the friends and loved ones no longer with us, celebrate the new friends in your lives, and cherish the family that continues to enrich your lives. On November 11 give thanks to all Veterans for the freedom we enjoy. We are so lucky to live in this wonderful country where we are free to believe as we please, to vote for the candidates of our choice, to go where we please, and to have fun, laughter, and square/round dancing in our lives.

Happiness is celebrating life for everything in it. Happy Thanksgiving to you all.
