Highlights From The April 2014 Meeting Of The AKC Board Of Directors

New York, NY – Highlights from the April 21-22, 2014 meeting of the AKC Board of Directors are as follows. Full details on these actions, as well as other actions taken, are included in the minutes for the meetings, which will be posted on the AKC website.

· In accordance with the requirements of the 2014 New York Non-Profit Revitalization Act, the Board adopted a revised Whistle Blower and Conflict of Interest Policy. The latter applies to AKC Board members and candidates for the AKC Board as well as key employees. Both policies are attachments to the April Board minutes.

· The Board amended the Conformation Judging Approval procedures as follows:

o Effective June 1, 2014, the masking of judging applicants will be discontinued.

o The meeting of all requirements must be verifiable upon request by AKC rather than documented with the application. The documentation must be retained by the judge for one year from the date the applicable breed was approved.

· Effective for shows held on and after October 9, 2014, if a club is to offer any Special Attraction with competition at its show, e.g. Best Puppy, Best Veteran, it must also offer the National Owner-Handled Series. Also, effective for shows held on and after October 9, 2014, the Group and Best-in-Show judges for the NOHS must be submitted with the judging panel for the regular show.

· The Berger Picard was approved to compete in the Herding Group, effective July 1, 2015.
