Anyone else concerned about the NDCA power grab requiring all amateur dancers to register and pay annual dues to compete in any NDCA comps?

My immediate reaction was of concern. But then I asked my instructor. He pointed out that only couples competing as amateurs have to register. Pro-Am couples are covered by the pro's registration. (Assuming he has one.) Of course, this doesn't help you if you're an amateur couple! Good luck.
[Turns out, the comp I was interested in--Empire State Dancesport--is running my events on Thursday and Friday, so I won't be able to compete. Sometimes it's easier to stick to one day comps! Hope to attend Saturday nite as a spectator though!] 1a2

If you were the amateur half of a pro/am couple then the NDCA does not require you to be an NDCA member.

Just a point of clarification - individual people are not members of the NDCA. The members of the NDCA are other organzations.

The NDCA rules require certain individuals to register with the NDCA, but that does not make them members. I guess it makes them "registrants."
Yes, you are correct.

Their rulebook does use the term "registrants."

I still don't like them.

I'm not familiar with their operations so I don't know what verification processes are used at NDCA-sanctioned events. It definitely sounds as though someone missed something in your case.
