"How do I make a complaint?"

_An accusation is not enough; and you must identify yourself._ At this year's 2003 CADA Annual General Meeting, held in Vancouver the day before our national championships, the Delegates spent a full hour carefully reviewing complaints against couples' eligibility to dance in the 2003 Canadian Closed Championships. Such complaints are not decided on the basis that "the Board doesn't like you" or "so-and-so is your friend". They are decided on the facts, by applying the relevant governing competition Rules, and not on subjective criteria or on the basis of how good a dancer the competitor is. Either you are eligible to compete under the Competition Rules, or you're not. People who are unhappy about something often don't seem to know how to make a complaint to a sport organization. According to most sporting rules, a complaint * must be in writing * must be signed, with a name, address, and contact numbers * must be more than an accusation * must not be made on condition of anonymity, or on any other condition * should be clear and specific, including dates, places, etc., and giving reasons * may be supported by documents, photographs, names, and contact information of witnesses * will be fully disclosed by the governing body that receives the complaint, to the accused athletes or officials so that they have a full and fair opportunity to reply to the accusation CADA and its Regional Associations each have their own Competition Rules about complaints. To make a complaint you must read and follow the appropriate set of Rules. They are easily available on web sites and on paper. It is unfair, unsportsmanlike, and unacceptable to make an oral complaint, or to circulate anonymous pamphlets defaming dancers or executives. If you have a real complaint, make it properly and openly, according to the Rules -- and it will be treated in a fair and businesslike way. If you want the complaint to have an effect at a certain point, give the Executive who receive it a reasonable amount of time to deal with it. Don't make it the day (or the minute) before a competition begins, unless absolutely necessary. --JIM FRASER, April 2003 _At the 2003 Canadian Closed Amateur DanceSport Championships, a complainant tried to distribute an unsigned pamphlet filled with accusations against various people in the dancing community, by placing the pamphlets on tables in the hall. She refused to identify herself to the organizers. Presiding President Jim Fraser ordered the pamphlets confiscated and directed that unless the complainant refrained from further such activity, she be escorted from the hall and not readmitted to the Championships that weekend._
