Highlights of the January 17, 2020 Board Meeting

NAFA 2019/2020 Elections
First of Two Questions Relating to Height of Jumps: Lowering Jump Heights
Passed: Jump heights are six inches lower than the height at the withers of the height dog. This change will be effective February 29, 2020.

Second of Two Questions Relating to Height of Jumps: Lowering Minimum
Not passed: Minimum jump height is 6 inches. As there was not a 2/3 majority for this vote, the minimum jump height will not change.

The board is currently evaluating two different methods of measuring at the withers: a preset wicket and a laser measuring system. Prototypes of both were demonstrated at the tournament in Baltimore this weekend. They will next be sent to Region 9, then Region 3.

The technology committee is working on designs that reduce the overall size, weight and cost of producing EJS. Dave Thomas is currently exploring new EJS light pole design that satisfies these objectives.

Congratulations to the following successful candidates:
Board of Directors - Jonathan Bescher, Cindy Henderson, Leerie Jenkins
In addition, Kurt Johnson accepted a one-year appointment to fill a vacancy on the board.

Executive Director - Neil Flood

Hall of Fame - Emma - Golden Retriever - Kate and Trey Corum - Chattanooga Chomp

Judge of the Year - Paul Ferlitto
