There are Delegates Meetings usually at the spring dance, then at the ASSDF Fall Festival. ASSDF Member Clubs should send 2 delegates to the meeting to discuss and vote on issues. Those clubs wishing to bid on a future ASSDF Fall Festival need to download the bid package, available here. While Bid Presentations and voting/awarding of the bid are done at the Fall Festival Delegates Meeting, there are deadlines for items earlier in the year. Bids are awarded two (2) years prior to the event. See the file for further details.

The 2023 ASSDF Fall Delegates Meeting will be on Saturday, Oct. 14, 2023, from 8:30am to 10:30am. The location will likely be the main dance hall at the hotel, or in one of the meeting rooms. The exact location will be announced at the Friday night dance. For the 2023 Fall Festival Friday and Saturday schedule, click here.
