First I would like to thank the board for approving
all Committee Chairs and their Committee members.
In this month’s Communiqué there are many
important items to be voted on. First we need to elect a new AKC
Delegate. The constitution states the President will nominate one
candidate. I nominated John Buddie, and one candidate was nominated
from the board, Amy Gau. So we will be able to elect the new delegate
this time. The board voted to continue with the newsletter which I
completely agree with. The Editor needs some help, so if you have
members that would like to serve the CCA please send me their names and
I will forward them to Katie DelGrosso.
Darci has been in contact
with Mary and
they are working on a contract between her and the CCA; I hope Darci
will have a report for the next communiqué. Next we need to
vote on the Calendar. From the discussion it appears everyone wants to
continue to produce a calendar.
The Committee Chairs and
have a lot of work to do; please support them in any way you can.
Hopefully Jeff and his Committee will have a rough draft soon on the
As most of you know, Nic
turned himself in to the authorities. I understand within the next few
days a decision will be made on releasing the Collies that he owned
back to their breeders or co-owners let’s hope that the
authorities will decide to release them soon. My message in the next
Bulletin states: There
are many lessons to be learned from this, please research the people
who are buying your dogs, call the DD in their area, and ask members
and 2 friends if they have any knowledge of the buyers. After the sell
stay in touch with the new owners, check back from time to time, I
think a follow up visit even 5 years later would be a good idea.
Please make your members
aware of the
upcoming articles and the Collie, being highlighted in Showsight
Magazine. It should be out Mid-August until September. Thank you for
all your hard work and dedication to the CCA and most important to the
Collie. Please help your members, educate them, and help them to make
the right decisions for our wonderful breed.
