Jim Wellnitz -- President

I've been working thirty-five years in distribution with several dozen contractors working for me. I've learned to deal with everyone as an individual and see their strengths. SDNLD brings so much more to me than dancing: challenging mentally, sweat induced workouts, friendships that I never thought could happen and so much more. It's time to give back.

After being introduced to line dancing in 2010 and taking a class from Diane Rojas (who was President of SDNLD) I was hooked. The challenge as a beginner was immense and my first exposure to our club was our monthly social. I was so intimidated by the degree of challenging dances that I nearly quit before beginning. This is a conundrum: How do we make new members comfortable without offending the more advanced dancers. I'll be looking to you for answers as to what you want in your club.

I've had the opportunity to fill the position of Treasurer over the past two and a half years. As president, I intend to continue moving forward in the positive manner the present board has directed this club. Listening to club members concerns and steering this club in the direction that is in the best interest of all members will be a goal and challenge. Our objective is to promote interest and participation in line dancing over a broad diverse group, this is a major task and I want to be receptive to changing needs of our members and have the board act accordingly.
MB Swikard -- Vice President

My name is MB Swikard and I serve as Vice President of the SDNLD Board. I previously served as Board Secretary for two years and have been an instructor locally to all levels of line dancers for 3 plus years. I have enjoyed being a line dancer for 9 plus years.

I hope to continue spreading the joy of dance to all dancers and making the club an inclusive group where everyone can come together and enjoy dancing and socializing with each other. I have met so many wonderful people through dancing and I look forward to meeting and dancing with many more. I look forward to the opportunity to continue the work of our founding club members and keep the club a place where we can all have fun and enjoy our shared love of dancing.
Kim Limtiaco -- Secretary

Hi, My name is Kim Limtiaco and I would like to be considered for the position of Board Secretary. I have been a member of the San Diego N Line Dancers for several years and have been involved with dancing, teaching, and choreography for more than a decade. I would like to offer my services to help our club to continue to thrive in the future.

I live in Alpine with my husband Steve and our 3 dogs. I recently retired from banking and have become actively involved training Labrador puppies for a local kennel. Many of these pups are donated to service organizations to continue their training to help our military. I.m a mother of two, Jennifer and Wesley and a soon to be a Grandma, expecting on Easter.

I was introduced to line dancing at our local community center. Luis Samaya was our instructor and he was ever so patient with us. We would learn a new dance and be so excited, then promptly forget it as soon as we walked out the door. However, we persevered, slowly improving as the years went on. Next up, Wagon Wheel, what a great place, missed by all. Another awesome instructor, Cathie Lopez kept us up to date on the newest of dances. We met a wonderful group of fellow dancers that shared our passion. Yes, had to change where we go to dance, but all those awesome dancers have continued to stick together. I appreciate my dancing family so much and cherish the friendships made. Line Dancers Rock!

I also served as Board Secretary for Alpine Bobby Sox and was team manager for several years. I continue to keep up on the latest trends in dance and enjoy going to all the line dancing events over the country. This year, Chicago here I come. My knowledge of dance and past experience as a board member will help me do what is necessary to fulfill this position.

Hi all, I'm Alice Clary.

I have been an active SDNLD member for over 2 years. I have been an avid Line Dancer for the last 8 years. I have danced with many different instructors and attend Socials, Parties and Workshops throughout the state. I dance at the Fair and attend Las Vegas Explosion. I play music for the Saturday morning dance at the Escondido Elks.

Line dancing provides me with the opportunity to meet many talented, outgoing and generous people. As the IDA Delegate I can pay it forward to provide quality opportunities for SDNLD members and other line dancers.
Nancy Nakatani -- IDA Second Delegate

I have been line dancing since 1996, and I am a long-time member of the San Diego 'n' Line Dancers. I'm not sure when I joined the club, but I believe that it's been more than ten years. I have served the club (along with my sister) by being in charge of setting up the refreshment table at our socials for five years. And now we're taking care of the coffee and tea at our socials. I love line dancing, and I hope to help our club continue to be a successful center for promoting our passion for dance.
