AFTCA Annual Open Meeting - Reno, NV

President Torben Hansen called the meeting to order at 5:15 PM with a nice crowd.

President Hansen called for the reading of the minutes by secretary Piper Huffman. Eli Richardson made the motion to accept the minutes and David Williams seconded the motion.

The Financial statement is typically given by John Milton however he was not in attendance. President Hansen read the letter sent by Mr. Milton stating the audit report is in order with net assets showing slight improvement over the last two years. There is too much dependency on sponsorships to cover operating cost of this organization. All in all the finances are solid and will continue to improve with the individual memberships.
Dr. Hunter Wilcox reported for the 20th Century Fund. The committee met and awarded 13 clubs grant money. The 501- C3 must be protected and the use of these funds must be for bird habitat improvement. After being awarded a grant, clubs must submit a letter explaining how the money was used. An impressive total of $217,220.00 has been granted to clubs as of this date. Dr. Wilcox encourages donations to the 20th Century Funding in order to help provide funds to give back to deserving clubs.

The Insurance report was given by Frank LaNasa. He stated there are five policies in place Officer’s Package, General Liability, Fidelity, Workers Compensation and Directors and Officers Liability. They have all remained with the same limits and premiums. The only change was the Cyber Essentials which cover liability with the new individual memberships. There is more personal data being collected which needs to be protected.

Michael Shears addressed the group on the membership committee. The individual membership is in place and went into effect October 2015. The executive committee did a great job to accommodate members. As of now, there are 738 members which is a small number. The AFTCA has been too dependent on sponsorship money to operate. These memberships will help this organization grow and hopefully become self-sustaining. Beginning July 1, 2016 the definition of “participate” stated in the by- law pertains to any handler, owner(s) or kennel name listed on the registration papers with the American Field must be an individual member to enter and participate in any AFTCA event excluding youth trials.

Frank LaNasa reported on the website stating it has been very frustrating working with the contracted web company Peacock without the desired results. This past year the executive committee voted to contract AFTCA member, Chris Mathan’s design firm, The Sportsman’s Cabinet to develop a new responsive, CMS website. Secretary Huffman will be able to communicate through the website much more easily and effectively. The goal is to have it up and running by mid-September.

President Hansen addressed the group with the upcoming 100 year anniversary of the AFTCA in 2017.He stated the board had given him permission to order 200 beautiful knives to celebrate with and sell to the public.

It was noted John Milton of Region 16 will be retiring from the AFTCA. He was a past President and has been on the board of trustee’s since 1999. President Hansen commended and honored Mr. Milton with all due respect and thankfulness for all he has contributed to the AFTCA.

Nominating committee chairman Gary Winall presented the following candidates for trustee by region:

Region 2, Dr. Hunter Wilcox; Regis Linn; Region 3, Johnny Atkinson; Region 4, Ray Wheeler; Region 7, Ray Black; Region 8, Preston Trimble; Region 14, Lou Qualitere. There were no nominations from the floor. A motion was made by Rick Stallings and seconded by Jim Crouse to accept nominations by acclamation. All were in favor.

Tony King presented the last item of business, the breed club report. At the annual meeting, the board of trustees voted to elect two more Trustee’s at Large to represent their breed clubs. Mark Johnson was voted in to represent the Viszla clubs and Mike Ethridge was voted in to represent the German Shorthair clubs. Dr. Bob Rankin will remain as Trustee at Large to represent the Brittany clubs and Don Beauchamp remains a trustee and represents the Red Setter clubs. The breed committee can now go to work and reach out to these different breeds hopefully get them involved with the AFTCA.

President Hansen adjourned the meeting at 5:55 PM.
