DEADLINE FOR OS/OD REVIEW SURVEY is FRIDAY, APRIL 27
Thanks in advance if you've already taken the OS/OD Review Survey; the Ad Hoc Committee has received quite a number of responses!
If you haven't yet participated, the survey deadline is Friday, April 27, at 5 pm CST.
As a follow-up to previous information, the GRCA Board has not taken a position or made a decision about this topic at this time; the Committee was formed in response to requests from the membership. This is why it's vitally important to complete the questionnaire so the Ad Hoc Committee may process your responses and report to the Board at the National this year.
Last summer and fall, the GRCA Board received concerns from the membership about underaged breedings and the "Get" from those underaged breedings helping to qualify dogs/bitches for the OS/OD designation. These GRCA members requested the Board look into their concerns. At the board meeting at the 2011 National, the Board voted to form an Ad Hoc Committee to consider this topic, and review the OS/OD as it relates to the Code of Ethics. It was also established that the current OS/OD point scale WOULD NOT be addressed.
Any additional questions may be directed to the Committee Chairman Kurt Macauley or to the two board liaisons, Leslie Blythe and Cathy Story.
