Flyers and Mailings
Check out the current flyers from the latest "electronic mailing" or review the archives below.
BACDS distributes flyers of upcoming dance activities for BACDS dance series, camps, and events, as well as many other dance organizations, near and far. Flyers are also sent out to BACDS members and to subscribers of our paper mailing or electronic mailing lists (see below).
Our publicity committee members coordinate the organizing of flyer submissions for the mailings.

These are sent out approximately 5 times a year. Folks gather for mailing parties to assemble flyers into packets to be mailed out. Mailing parties are usually held in the morning on the first Saturday of the month, and are a great way to really get to know some of the people who make things happen in the dance community. You can find out about the next mailing party by subscribing to the BACDS-announce email list or contacting the publicity committee.
The approximate schedule for mailings is:
These normally coincide with paper mailings, and come as an email with a link to online copies of flyers that you can print yourself. There are also links to other related references, web pages, Facebook pages, etc. The electronic mailing often contains "bonus" items such as events from prior mailings that still haven't happened yet, or flyers which couldn't "fit" into the paper mailing due to postal restrictions.
Want to submit a flyer?
BACDS welcomes flyer submissions from any BACDS event or activity, and for
related music and dance activities from other organizations. We can send flyers
to BACDS members via first class mail, to individual dances to display on their 'events tables',
or to other regional dance organizations. We also post them on
our "electronic publication" web page ("Epubs").
* BACDS flyers get priority over non-BACDS flyers if the mailing is "full".
Submit flyers via email to firstname.lastname@example.org as an attachment. In the email subject, specify the quarter number (Mar=1, Jun=2, etc) and name of the event (for example, "3rd Qtr 2019, Foo Fa Dance Camp"). In the message specify whether the flyer is for 1st class mail, dance manager packets, or Epubs (list as few or many as appropriate).
Requirements for ALL flyers:
Paper flyer requirements (things to tell us in the email when you submit your flyer):
Epubs recommendations (remember all paper flyers automatically go into Epubs, too):
The fine print: paper mailings are subject to postal regulation weight and size limitations. No more than 6 flyers ("pages"), plus our Newsletter and Calendar can be in the paper mailing. Flyers will be included in the order received, but may be superseded by special event flyers. If all the available "space" is taken up by BACDS events, non-BACDS flyer sometimes get "bumped" for lack of room. Flyers for the paper mailing may be printed 2-sided in order to get more flyers into a mailing packet. These flyers will be printed 1-sided for distribution at the dances. Electronic mailings have no such restrictions and all paper flyers are automatically included in "Epubs". Once an event is submitted to Epubs, it remains on the page until the event has passed. BACDS reserves the right not to publish/distribute any given flyer.
