Club News
President’s Message . . .
You have in your possession a summary of changes to our Constitution from the Constitution Committee and you will find a copy in this Communiqué. Please discuss this with your members; we have a big job ahead of us to bring our Constitution up to NYS laws and AKC. It is evident that we need to change the way our Club does business, we all will need to work together to find the best ways to start this transition. There are a lot of discussions on how we should vote on board business.

I would ask during these discussions you try to find ways to start the transition to comply with the law and not what is the easiest in the short term. I would love to be able to vote by e-mail, but it is against the NYS law. This is not going to be easy, and we are not the first club that has had to change the way we do club business, but I am confident that we will be able to work together and get the job done. Thank you Jeff and your Committee on the work you are doing on this project.

The calendar is being shipped and has been a great success; I would like to thank Collie Expressions for getting it done in such a timely manner. I am told there are still Calendars available, please let your members know who to contact if they have not purchased there’s yet.

I sent the board a proposal from the Breeders Education Committee; they have worked very hard on this project, please consult with your members on this proposal and vote accordingly.
