The following post by Ann Durocher appeared in my Facebook news feed: Dear Friends, As most of you know, I do not post much on FB, but today I feel it is appropriate that I make a post, as some of you have placed your trust in me when you voted for me as the Senior VP of USA Dance. I want you to hear it from me that I have resigned my position with USA Dance as of today. I do not derive my personal power from positions of authority nor do I have a personal agenda when it comes to my volunteerism. With that in mind, I choose not to spend the last good years of my life taking time away from the ones I cherish the most while working in an environment where those in the power seat do not value my opinions, the work I do and who marginalize my voice. I am sorry that I have let you down if you voted for me, but remaining in the position would likely jeopardize my self respect and it is best for the organization that I move on. I am surrounded by the love of a wonderful family and the very best friends anyone could ever hope to have. I do not look back with regret or anger. USA Dance has given me a purpose outside of myself and I have been able to give to others along the way. I am happy to look forward and I realize just how blessed my life is.
