Goodwill Ambassadors

Every year, as their last official duty, the Federation President may name a couple or individual to serve as a Goodwill Ambassador. Goodwill Ambassadors are expected to be energetic and friendly representatives of Oregon, dancing when they travel. They spread information about specific Oregon events, such as the Mid-Winter Festival and Summer Festival. They donate their time and energy for the good of Oregon square and round dancing. They smile a lot.

Each Goodwill Ambassador serves a 5-year term, and can be reappointed when their term expires.

Appointment Ambassador

POOFs - Past Officers of the Oregon Federation

All current and past elected officers, appointed officers, and area delegates are automatically POOFs -- Past Officers of the Oregon Federation.

The primary purpose of the POOFs is to oversee publication of the Oregon Federation News, our monthly news magazine. The POOFs hold two formal meetings each year, one each at the Summer and Mid-Winter Festivals.

An advisory board of three persons is appointed by the Federation President to act as a liaison between the POOFs and the OFN editor. Advisory board members serve a three year term with staggered terms, so that one member rotates off and is replaced each year.

Informally, many POOFs have been holding POOF reunions each year. The location and format has varied, but most recently, potlucks hosted by one or more POOFs have been held at private homes.

A partial list of POOFs is available here. Contact the webmaster to be added to this list.
