Contribute to a Survey!

As chair of the Gauverband’s Communication and Education Committee, I’m asking for your input so we can learn from one another. Our request is for your Verein to take some time to go to this link and complete the survey as soon as possible. We hope to learn and share best practices around recruiting; Verein structure, purpose, and activities; rehearsal and dance performances; partnerships with other cultural organizations that are helping your Verein.

Where will the 2019 Gaufest be?

Planning for a Gaufest starts at least three years ahead of time! At this year's Delegates Meeting in May, the site of the 2019 Gaufest will be selected. Bids for the Gaufest are due by January 30, and so far, nothing official has been received. If your Verein will be bidding or is interested in bidding, contact Meetings Committee Chairman Joe Hubner ( The deadline can be extended accordingly. Don't be shy! After all, what would an "odd" year be without a Gaufest to celebrate?

Opportunity to Volunteer

The Gauverband's Beisitzer and the Media and Communications Committees are looking for volunteers to work on improving our social media presence.  If you're interested in helping, please email
