  13. If you’re like me, you’ve been checking DCP constantly these past few weeks to see all the changes happening with World Class corps staffs. Unfortunately, the "Staff merry-go-round" thread is no longer a viable source for any information as it has been derailed by irrelevant topics for 40+ pages. Therefore, I’ve started this thread to be your one-stop shop for staff updates. I will try to update this post as corps continue to share new updates. You can help by posting new updates in this thread as you see them!

Let’s try to keep this thread focused to staff changes—tangential discussions are free to be held in their own separate threads!
  14. Daniel Montoya The rest of the design team is listed here:
  15. I am well aware of five cases of sexual harassment/misconduct involving OC students and/or staff from the 2017 and 2018 seasons. In each situation, any justice served was motivated primarily by instructional staff. On the contrary, the executive corps director either took no action whatsoever or acted appropriately only after pressured by other staff members to do so. The new tour staff this year had only two items on their agenda: to do their jobs and to do their jobs WELL. I wouldn’t be shocked if they wanted to expand their roles in the organization—not because they were bloodthirsty for power, but because they likely could run it more effectively. (Imagine showing up to a new job with more experience and more proven success than your boss... wouldn’t you feel justified in your desire to be promoted?) I wouldn’t be shocked if the new tour staff’s competence simply threatened the mediocrity of the corps director and the board chairman. I don’t question that the corps director was, generally, a nice person. I also don’t question that he was the right leader to take over back in 2007 when the only goal was to simply field a corps. Now that they’ve been in a higher echelon of competitive success, I think the role has since grown to be too big for him to fill, and I think his pride prevented him from admitting that. If he had the strength to admit his deficiencies, he would have stepped down in August after the staff urged the Board of Directors for his resignation. Instead, he and the chairman of the board held onto their roles until they were left with no choice but to shut down the corps for 2019. Again, no one wanted this to happen—we just wanted an OC managed by trustworthy, capable people. Though the corps director and board chairman were nice people, their actions (or lack thereof, in some cases) spoke louder than their nice words, ultimately proving them to not be the leaders that this corps needed anymore.
