CanAm Hotel Site

It was brought to my attention today that the majority of the rooms listed on our CanAm Hotel site at the two LaQuinta hotels, and possibly a few others, listed the only available rooms as smoking. This was an error and the site has been corrected to reflct them as non-smoking.

April 22 Teleconference Meeting Highlights

Ally Stern <ally@...>
 

The Board has received the written resignation from Greg Stopay. We thank
Greg for his years of service on the Board and hard work- he devoted
hundreds of hours to NAFA. The Board has appointed Sam Ford to fill out the
remainder of Greg Stopay's term. We are very fortunate that we can call on
Sam Ford. He is already involved in the CanAm as well as other NAFA
projects and is able to devote the time needed to fill out Greg's term.

Board meeting highlights

Dana Nichols <workinglabs@...>
 

The Board heard Disciplinary Action DC #2011-1 at a hearing 4/16/11 and made the following findings:

 

“We find that the disciplinary charge was not sustained, but that the accused administered an inappropriate correction in the ring and that correction was administered to another team’s dog.  This action merited a reprimand, but did not merit disciplinary action.”
