Membership in Cascade Zydeco helps Cascade Zydeco meet its mission. Dues help fund our events during the year--live music, zydeco at the Waterfront Blues Festival, workshops, Wednesday night cd dances, and an annual picnic. An individual membership is only $25 per year and it's tax-deductible! Members get a discount on all Cascade Zydeco DJ dances. To join or renew, fill out a membership form at the entry desk on at any Cascade Zydeco dance, download a printable membership form, or join online using PayPal or a credit card.

Our election ballots go out around in mid-July in order to give the new board members time for a smooth transition before their official term begins in August. The Board meets once a month by Skype or at a local restaurant near the Wednesday night dance venue. It's fun, you get to know more people, and it's satisfying to make a contribution of your time, energy and ideas - and we need you! (Read our new By-Laws PDF.) No experience required!
When elections roll around in July, in order for the membership to get acquainted with you, we ask that interested candidates submit a small paragraph about why they're interested in running for the board and a little about their background. We don't need a lot - just a brief introduction. Including a picture is great, too (or we can take one for you). Introductions and photos should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org in June, or written up and given to one of the current board members. Board member email is listed on the contact page.
