IMPORTANT MEMBERSHIP INFORMATION REGARDING PROPOSED STANDARD REVISIONS: The ASC Board of Directors has decided that the best ways to provide information and conduct the discussion about the proposed Breed Standard Revisions are to 1) put all of the comments from the Breed Standard Survey on the ASC Website under the Member Zone; and 2) conduct all discussions and debate about the proposed revisions on the ASC Yahoo List. Accordingly, ASC members will have to log in to the Member Zone to review the comments from the survey and will need to be signed up for the ASC Yahoo List. Also, ASC members can make their comments known to the AKC Board of Directors during the 60-day comment period. These comments will be provided to ASC.

 

The Breed Survey comments are now on the Member Zone for ASC members’ review. The comments are under the Board Minutes section.

 

To sign up for the ASC Yahoo List go to https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/ASC_membership and click “Join Group.” One of the administrators will approve you.

News on the Cataract Research Project - Updated 12/31/2016


 

WON’T YOU VOLUNTEER?

This is a quote I love with regard to volunteering - “Volunteers do not necessarily have the time; they just have the heart.”

Needless to say in an all-volunteer organization like the American Spaniel Club and the American Spaniel Club Foundation, volunteers make a vital difference because neither organization would exist without dedicated volunteers. Simply stated -- volunteers are essential for the health and well-being of both Clubs and ultimately our beloved flushing spaniels.

Studies show that there are six main reasons people volunteer: to make a difference in others’ lives; to support an organization or cause; to learn something new; to develop personally or professionally; to feel better about themselves; and to meet people. In other words, volunteering is personal. Advertisements that simply state an organization needs volunteers are not generally successful and I know ASC and ASCF have both found that to be true. However, just think if you could make a difference, support a cause you love (cocker spaniels and the other flushing breeds), feel good in accomplishing an important goal, and meet other people who also love spaniels, wouldn’t you want to volunteer?

As the ASC Board announced at the National Specialty in July, ASC has embarked on a strategic plan to make ASC stronger and more relevant in today’s world of pure bred dogs. There are many areas in which ASC needs help – ASC communications, including a new breed magazine, social media, the new website, breeders education, judges education and public education; membership development and events; marketing; branding; national conformation and performance events; and field events. To accomplish this strategic plan a wide variety of volunteers are needed.

I know ASC has an amazingly talented membership with diverse experiences and expertise that can help ASC accomplish its strategic goals. Accordingly, ASC would like to be sure its knows about your expertise and interests. In ASC’s Annual Mailing, which everyone should have received by now, and on the ASC website and by survey monkey, there is a Volunteer Interest Form. PLEASE fill out the form and return it to either Dee Torgerson Rismyhr or Laurie Foley. From the Annual Mailing, Laurie has already received a number of completed forms. Thank you to those members for your immediate response, but we need a response from everyone!

To give one's time and talent for a good cause is a special feeling. And to see what a group like ASC’s membership can accomplish will be amazing. WON’T YOU HELP? WON”T YOU VOLUNTEER?

I am always open to hearing your thoughts, so email me anytime at lmoore@estesokon.com
