The American Kennel Club OCTOBER Secretary's page states the following statement:

"As a result of an Event Committee determination the following individual stands suspended of AKC privileges. It should be noted that this determination may still be appealed and may be reversed. Upon expiration of the appeal process, an appropriate notice describing the status of the individual’s suspension, if any, will appear in this column:" (names appeared on AKC's page in exactly this context) Mr. Charles Hines (Hinsdale, IL) - Ms. Francis Keays (Kuna, ID)


OCTOBER: APPEALS COMMITTEE (Board Minutes) - There was an EXECUTIVE SESSION with the following action reported out of this session: Mr. Wayne Cavanaugh was previously denied reinstatement of his judging privileges by the Board. He appealed and the Board voted to approve the Board Committee’s recommendation to reinstate Mr. Cavanaugh’s Judging privileges conditional on the 12 breeds previously approved being reactivated in permit status, pending the satisfactory completion of the requirements as defined within the Judging Approval Process which include the successful completion of the AKC Procedural and Anatomy exams, to be interviewed on current Rules, Regulations, Policies, Guidelines and Breed Standards, and the remittance of a $35 fee.


SEPTEMBER: Request for Special Application of Hardship Policy - The Board reviewed a request for a special application of the Hardship Policy to allow for the transfer of dogs and semen owned by a deceased person who was on referral and awaiting suspension at the time of death. This will be discussed further at the October Board Meeting.
