*sigh* That just frustrates me. Why are pro organizations representing PASDs, and not the PASDs ourselves? This response reminds me of the reason why most competition organizers won't deal directly with PASDs or openly post comp fees online. If PASDs were registered and regulated, I could see where some organizations might be concerned this would result in a loss of income for them. In comparison to the amount most PASDs pay, an annual registration fee that allows them to be tracked and regulated really isn't much going to break the budget. Personally, despite being a PASD, I belong to my local amateur organization and support it, even though I am more likely to find a unicorn in my backyard than a partner for Am/Am competition where I live. Don't get me wrong, I have nothing against the professional organizations, but just see it as a bit of a conflict of interest. That said, I am sure if PASDs were truly interested in getting involved and being regulated it would have already happened. I imagine or am guessing that most just want to dance and as long as nothing really interferes with that, then why should we get involved?
