"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has."
Being a part of KU Dance Marathon does not mean that you have to be a good dancer (you can take it from us). Being a part of KU Dance Marathon means personally developing and growing as a leader while meeting amazing people along the way. Our organization is unlike any other on campus. Our leadership is somewhat of a motley crew, coming from backgrounds of accounting, graphic design, event planning, social media, dancing, etc. But we all share one thing in common: everything we do is For the Kids.
Our Leadership Structure
Our executive board consists of our Executive Director, Director of Internal Operations, Director of External Operations, and Director of Business. These individuals are responsible for overseeing a group of steering members and for making sure our organization has everything it needs to be successful.
Our steering board consists of 11 individuals who are responsible for directing certain committees for their divisions. Our steering directors oversee the finance, sponsorship, fundraising, media, graphic design, family relations, recruitment & morale, and entertainment divisions of our organization.
Our committee members are the largest part of our organization. The committee members report to their steering director and help out with certain projects all year long. The dedication and passion of our committees contributes to the FTK spirit of our organization.
