Members present (Merle Taylor, Kathi Brown, Tom Hossfeld, Kathy Ferris)
Darle Heck absent.
Merle Taylor asked for the members to report on anything communication or activities that any of us have been involved in that might relate to or offer insight to this committee.
Kathi Brown spoke with the Australian Terrier person who is writing articles for their magazine about breed in parts. She was asking how they are received and how they developed their concept.
Tom Hossfeld was at Great Western and did not have any questions or concerns come up.
Kathy Ferris had nothing related to the committee.
Merle has not yet sent a reply by letter to Michele Fujawa.
He thanked Tom for creating his quiz. He thinks it is great since it is interesting to see how prospective judges look at our standard.
Merle said we were to talk about the Forum at this meeting. Have we had time to look at it? Merle made a post to create some discussion on memorable moments in the breed.
Kathi Brown wanted to know thoughts others had on Michelle Fujawa’s letter. She shared that the word “politics has multiple meanings.. Especially negative in the context of this election year, but mostly having to do with the process of a governmental or organizational process. A process that in this case is determined by the constitution of the STCA, the requirements of the AKC and the organizational importance of informing the membership and still abiding by the requirements of AKC and STCA. It can be perceived as an attack on one person for one word and requires communication and response. Thank you to Merle for doing so. Discussion followed
Merle encourage us all to think about creating some topics on the forum. Discussion on this followed.
Next meeting will be Monday 7/25/16 at 7:30 pm EST.
Meeting adjourned at 8:30 pm EST.
