NAFA dog points summaries

Lee Heighton
 

In our continuing effort to "go green" we will no longer be including the printed dogs points summeries sheets when award pins are presented to each Club. Normally these summeries are out dated by the time they are actually handed out to each Club and this information is readily avaialable on the NAFA website. Club owners can contact Annie Taylor if they would still like to receive the summary sheets. Thank you.

Electricity Availability at CanAm

Dana Nichols <workinglabs@...>
 

One of the great advantages of moving CanAm to the larger West Pavilion, besides having more space, is that there are ample electricity plugs available for our competitors.    If you look at the drawing of the overall space at the top of the crating link (attached for your convenience) on the CanAm site you will see a series of dots throughout the building.   Those dot represent poles and each pole has multiple electrical outlets.   

 

We wanted to share this information with you as it may or may not influence your choice of crating areas.

proposed revisions to bylaws & articles of incorporation

Dana Nichols <workinglabs@...>
 

The proposed changes to the bylaws and articles of incorporation are now posted on the NAFA web page.  These will be considered by the Board at the August 7, 2010 Board meeting.  If you have any comments, you may send them directly to the Board members or Chair or send an email through the contact us form and direct it to the Rules Committee. 

 

http://www.flyball.org/news_board.html

Here is some additional information about the review that is posted on the NAFA site:

 

     NAFA is a nonprofit Michigan directorship entity. As its corporate documents hadn’t been reviewed for many years, we hired Jane Forbes, who is with Michigan law firm of Dykema and serves as co-chair of the State Bar of Michigan Nonprofit Corporations Committee, to review NAFA’s articles of incorporation and bylaws to make sure they comply with the most current Michigan statutes and to bring them into the 21st century, legally and practically. The attached proposed revisions to the articles of incorporation and bylaws are the product of that work.
We’ve put up both redline and clean copies, so you can track the proposed revisions easily. Some involve moving language that doesn’t belong in bylaws to the corporate policies or rules; an example is the reference to dog CRN’s in Article III, which will be moved to Chapter 3 of the Rules of Racing since we’re advised this shouldn’t be in the bylaws. Others are more technical, such as the revision to the “deemed consent” provision for board approvals of administrative matters, or are designed to match the bylaws to actual practice, such as the composition and names of the various board committees. Still others are designed to state things more clearly than they are now. Finally, some are intended to modernize our documents so we can use outside services, like internet voting services, that weren’t even thought of when the original documents were created.


Amendments take a two-thirds vote of the Board of Directors. The Board plans to consider these at its August 7 meeting. These are a work in progress and NAFA welcomes comments and suggestions from NAFA community. Please send them directly to the Board members, whose contact information is listed on this site, or directly to the Board’s Chair at
Leerie Jenkins.

The Agenda for the August 7, 2010 meeting has been posted.  Included with it now are the Rules Committee recommendations (same document, just after the agenda itself).  For the May meeting we tried a new format where we posted the Rules Committee recommendations ahead of time to give people the opportunity to provide comments before the Board considered the issues at the meeting.  We're adopting that same format again for this meeting.  Here is the link:  http://www.flyball.org/news_board.html  It also includes the email link to provide comments.  I'll compile all the comments received and distribute them to the Board before the meeting.
