Ideas-

         -Take an inventory of current DJ equipment and what needs to be replaced.

         - A better way to store DIS DJ equipment (I.E. storage at Walker).

         - Future Jack and Jill series for summer

         - Package deal...buy a years worth of dances and receive a month (2 dances) for free

         - Adopting a DJ Policy and potential changes to DJ schedule

         - Creating a survey for new attendees to assess level of satisfaction and ways to make the dance better to promote retention and growth.
