Presidents Message

February 2017

As the warm days of summer approach, I reflect back with fondness on the recent success that was the Parent Club and National specialties. Kudos to those who braved the elements, I trust you will agree with me that you were rewarded with well-orchestrated and enjoyable events in spite of the weather. Congratulations to all of the winners!

Hats off to Jennifer Baumer and her entire show committee for their service and dedicated efforts, I couldn't be prouder of them and the results. This year's events were brought in profitably well ahead of budget and, combined with the benefits realized from our first on-line auction preceding the specialties, proved that we can deliver quality events for the membership that are self-sustaining. My gratitude goes out to Kat Yokley and Thelma Carlson for bringing the on-line auction to successful fruition - I trust it is evidence of continuing new initiatives to follow. Thank you also to all of the generous donors and bidders.

Just because this year's specialties are over don't think there are no more opportunities to serve the Club. Presently, the Board is seeking volunteers to form a Bylaws Committee specifically to address term limits for the JCCA Board of Directors, a proposal supported by attendees of this year's Annual Meeting. If you have served on a bylaws committee or have experience you think might be beneficial for this committee, please contact the Board at board@japanesechinclub.org.

Also, we want to form a committee to draft Ethics Guidelines to assist boards to consistently and fairly adjudicate ethics complaints. If you have interest in this area and some legal experience or other relevant experience, again contact board@japanesechinclub.org.

Enjoy the shows and your dogs this summer, much success to all, and be kind to one another.
