2018 National Specialty Activities

All non-show activities will be at the Host Hotel

Thursday , October 18

9:30am – 12 noon Judges Education – (The seminar portion of the judges education is open to all members for observation only.  The hands-on portion is closed and available to judges only.)

1:30 – 2:30pm Annual Board Meeting – All members are welcome to attend and give input to the Board.
2:30-4:00pm Breeders Forum – Carolyn Nusbickel will lead this important discussion for Puli breeders.

Results of the Breeders’ Survey will be shared with the membership. The Forum
is also intended to be a venue for discussion regarding breed sustainability
as well as the Breeders’ section of the PCA Guidelines and any necessary efforts
to further clarify the guideline language so that there is no ambiguity on
the club’s intent. Objectives for the discussion are two-fold:
1. Discuss and agree upon 2-3 next steps for the Board and Club to pursue related
to the sustainability of the breed in the United States; and
2. Discuss areas of the PCA Guidelines for breeders in need of clarifying language
with the aim of fostering a common understanding of club objectives and
the implied support the PCA Breeders listing and litter listings offer.
