The Board convened on Monday, May 13, 2019 at 8:34 a.m. All Directors were present, except for Ms. McAteer and Mr. Wooding. Mr. Wooding participated in the entire meeting by teleconference but could not vote by Board policy. Also present was the Executive Secretary.
The April 2019 Board minutes, copies of which had been provided to all Directors, were discussed.
At the April Board meeting the Board reviewed an amendment to Rules Applying to Dog Shows Chapter 7, Section 12. There was a sense of the Board in reviewing the minutes that the wording approved in the proposed rule change would be clearer with the addition of the word “schedule” in the last sentence.
Following a motion by Dr. Garvin, seconded by Mr. Powers, the Board VOTED (unanimously; absent Ms. McAteer; Mr. Wooding not voting) to amend the April minutes to include the addition of the word “schedule” to the proposed amendment to in Rules Applying to Dog Shows Chapter 7, Section 12: The program shall be based on the judging of about 25 dogs per hour by each judge. Each judge’s breed and variety assignments shall be divided into periods of about one hour, except in those cases where the entry in a breed or variety exceeds 30. The final segment of a ring schedule may be expanded but may not exceed 50 dogs unless the entry is in a single breed or variety.
Upon a motion by Ms. Biddle, seconded by Mr. Powers, the April 2019 minutes were unanimously, approved as amended (absent Ms. McAteer; Mr. Wooding not voting).
Louis Auslander - A moment of silence was observed to mark the passing of Louis Auslander, AKC Board Chairman from 1987-1992 and AKC President 1991-1992.
