  • • The Board voted unanimously to designate the AKC Board Room as the Walter F. Goodman Memorial Board Room, which will be commemorated with a brass plaque.
  • • The Board approved the 2014 budget.
  • • The Board adopted a new policy regarding the granting of group judging eligibility with the effective date to be set at the December 2013 Board Meeting.

o An AKC judge approved to judge breeds comprising 80% of the entries in a group the previous year could be approved for the group after passing the breed standard tests and submitting a $25 non-refundable processing fee per breed for the remaining breeds in that group.
o The group approval would be for no more than three years, dating from the first group assignment.
o The judge may not be assigned breeds not currently approved on either regular or permit basis constituting the balance of the group.
o Group status would be removed after three years if a judge has failed to gain approval for the balance of the breeds within the group.

  • • Effective January 1, 2014, Basset Hounds and Bulldogs are to be judged on a ramp in Group and Best in Show competition.

The complete changes are in the minutes of the October 2013 meeting.
  • • Several amendments were made to the Agility Regulations at the request of the 2013 Agility Advisory Committee.
