President’s Message SVCA Membership, It is a New Year and there is hope for a reduction in the pandemic we are all dealing with as vaccines become available. I hope 2021 will be a better and brighter New Year for us all and we will begin moving back to the world of dogs we all love with the return of more shows and trials. I want to thank the members that have taken on the Newsletter, Susan Clingenpeel, Danielle Roberson and Jamie Daveler. Our quarterly newsletters have been missed by the membership and we are excited to see them return. I also want to thank Colleen Horn for her more than 15 years as our membership chair. Colleen turned the membership chair position over to Gail Decamp after the 2020 renewal cycle and Gail is currently moving through her first renewal cycle on her own. Thank you, Gail, for agreeing to take this task on for the club. We also have a new Club Historian – Cindy Kingsley has agreed to take on this position and we thank her for stepping up. The migration to occurred early last year when the old Yahoo Groups was disabled by Yahoo. is a nice site with more capabilities than Yahoo – I encourage members to explore the site and to think about how we can use Groups features for the club. If you are a member that has not joined the site, I encourage you to reconsider. Gail Decamp as membership chair can assist you in joining, as can our Club Secretary. The files section of contains the Board minutes, Treasurer’s reports, Club By-laws and Constitution as well as other important policy documents. This is also a good time to review the upcoming important dates for the club: --- December 31st is the deadline for renewing your membership, however we provide a grace period until 1 March. --- March is also the deadline for submitting applications/proposals for holding a National Specialty in the following year. Wishing everyone a good new year, Michelle Fromm SVCA President 3
