OCTOBER AGM MINUTES

 I. Quorum:

a. Needed a 20% quorum required by bylaws to hold annual meeting. There were only 28 members in attendance, which was short of the required 117 for a quorum. So, this meeting became a “town hall” style meeting, where no official business or votes could be conducted.

II. For the Good of the Order: thanks to all who have contributed to making the 2006 National Specialty a success!!!

III. Introductions to 2005-06 Board of Directors

a. President: Michelle Olsen (not in attendance)
b. Vice President: Joyce Norris—presiding over the meeting
c. Corresponding Secretary: Kelly Lee Hagstrand (not in attendance)
d. Recording Secretary: Laura Wright (not in attendance)
e. Treasurer: Wayne Koutsky
f. Board Member at Large: Beth Bartholomew (not in attendance)
g. Board Member at Large: Sally Davis
h. Past President: Denise Teal
i. New AKC Delegate: Claudia Frank (not in attendance)

IV. Corresponding Secretary’s Report (not in attendance)

V. Recording Secretary’s Report (not in attendance)

VI. Treasurer’s Report:

VII. President’s Report: Highlights from the Past Year

a. Health Foundation: Dawn Antoniak-Mitchell has been hard at work drawing together documents and recruiting volunteers. We have a good starting group who is on the verge of incorporating. Once they are “on their feet” BCSA will give them a start-up donation and set them free, to be an independent entity that serves the breed and is not registry-specific. We hope that it will bridge the political gap between registries and serve the whole breed in this country.
b. AKC Delegate: Claudia Frank is now our approved AKC Delegate and has been elected to serve on the Herding, Earthdog and Lure Coursing Committee (HEC) as an expert on herding. This is exciting news, and allows our club to influenced herding event policy changes at their source.
c. Borderlines: because publishing the magazine is a HUGE job, we’re moving to more of a “team” model with many editors and a professional publisher to do layout and a lot of the “grunt work.” We hope you enjoy the new look. This is a costly move, but the board felt was best for our volunteers, so that we don’t overwork our club members.
d. ACE Project (Abolish Canine Epilepsy): last year, we had 69 samples, 17 affected, now we are up to 83 samples, 22 affected. This is good news, but we need to keep encouraging owners of affected dogs to submit samples and also recruit samples from non-affected relatives to close the gap on the genes responsible. ACE shirt sales still happening around the country.
e. Open Field Herding: Continued financial support for B course trials and Kentucky Bluegrass ISDS trial
f. Stock Dog of Distinction Award: New award which recognizes dogs who compete successfully in at least three herding venues (AKC, USBCHA and either ASCA or AHBA). Prize is a $100 gift card and a BCSA certificate, plus a feature article in Borderlines. Requirements are an AKC herding champion, either an ASCA WTCH or AHBA HTCH, plus 5 open USBCHA points.
g. Website continues to be an information clearinghouse for our breed, with thousands of hits per month.
h. Judges Education: the board has approved a new presentation for JE, which is in a PowerPoint format. We’ll be seeking feedback over the next year as it’s used, to see how attendees like it. Linn Kingel is also working on a lot of supplemental documentation, and new procedures for approving judge mentors and JE seminar presenters. This is one of our top goals for 2007, is to broaden our reach in educating judges.
i. Rescue funding: have approved several grant requests for help for rescue groups, but we still have more money that is allocated for this purpose. This year we’ve opened up the criteria to allow for funding more rescue activities besides just educational efforts; but we still haven’t received many requests.
j. Color committee researched the issue of how to divide color classes for conformation (for clubs wishing to do so). We submitted an alteration of the wording to AKC, to make it clearer how the classes should be split, so exhibitors aren’t confused about which class is right for their dog.
k. Judge Selection committee worked with the board to develop a proposal for how to select judges for future national specialties. This is a challenging task, and we’ve gotten as far as agreeing on the concept of how we’d like to do it. Now implementation is in order, we hope to have this rolled out in 2007.
l. All breed agility trials: these are a great money-maker for us, and in 2007 we’ll be having two of them, one in Ohio and one in Pennsylvania.
m. Juniors program: Mary Beth Overmyer and Linda Follis are still soliciting suggestions for ways BCSA can encourage and honor junior handlers.
n. National herding trial lottery: this year, we moved to a lottery system for processing entries, to make accesses fairer to those who live in rural areas and can’t use overnight mail delivery. We also added incentives for worker volunteers. This had a very positive impact, we got many more volunteers than usual, so we’ll likely sick with this model in the future.
o. 2007 National: Julie Bosier and Megan Harrison are co-chairing. Plans are under way. If you are enjoying your time here this week, remember that a LOT of work goes into putting on these events; so please consider contributing in some way to next year’s event.
p. Historian: we’ve been communicating with AKC’s archivist to determine what parts of our club’s and breed’s history are missing from the AKC archives. We have some new volunteers who are going to work on completing their collection and adding current event information as it occurs.
q. Meet the Breeds booth at the AKC Invitational: hosted by Laura Wright and Sandra Lindenmuth, reached thousands of members of the public, great educational opportunity. This winter, Catherine Swain has volunteered to coordinate it in CA.
r. AKC Complete Dog Book: new edition coming out, editor asked us if we would like to use a more modern photo than the one of Old Hemp. The board decided that even though the photo is old, it’s clear enough to easily see the features of the dog, and that displaying this historical progenitor of our breed is the best reminder of our preservation goal; as well as avoiding controversy over copyright issues of more modern photos and the debate over whose dog is “the” best example of the breed to display in the book.
s. General Ed Committee: produced a brochure guide on choosing a good breeder.
t. Affiliate Club Start-Up Grants: the board has approved a $500 start-up cost reimbursement as well as one year of free BCSA membership for new affiliate clubs, to encourage the formation of new clubs.
u. Elections: this is election year, and the nominating committee has produced their slate of officers. No-one else submitted application to run as opposition, so the slate is elected unanimously. For the 2007-2008 board term, the BCSA board members are (introduce new members if they are present):

• Utility Division: Invites will be issued to the top 20 ranked Utility dogs once the UDX, OTCH, and combined invitees are removed.
• Open Division: Invites will be issued to the top 20 ranked Open dogs once the UDX, OTCH, combined invitees, and utility invitees are removed.
• Novice Division: Invites will be issued to the top 20 ranked Novice dogs.

The following procedure will be followed if BCSA Obedience Scoreboard stats are not available:
• Combine Division: Entries will be open to all dogs holding a UDX or OTCH title.
• Utility Division: Entries will be open to all UD titled dogs who have earned 3 qualifying scores of 193 in Utility at 3 AKC Obedience Trials.
• Open Division: Entries will be open to all CDX titled dogs who have earned 3 qualifying scores of 193 in Open at 3 AKC Obedience Trials

• The four division Champions will then have the honor of competing in a “Crufts” style heelwork run-off. This run-off will take place in a double sized ring. It will be an extended (i.e. several minutes) heelwork pattern modeled after British obedience requirements. Included will be any move allowed per the UK Regulations at the Championship “C” level. For example, the pattern may include circles left and right; left about turns; angled turns, 270 degree turns, and double about turns. These elements may be called at normal, slow, or fast pace per the UK Regulations. This run-off will use a “steward” to call the pattern so that the judge can focus on scoring the teams. The run-off pattern will be clearly posted for all competitors to see.
• The Invitational Championship rosette, prizes, and “BCSA Obedience Trial Dog Of The Year” honors will be awarded to the highest scoring dog in the run-off who posted a qualifying score to win their division [Note: combined division champion must have posted a qualifying score in at least one of the two combined classes].
