  • October 6th, 2011 - Multibreed point proposal for a binding delegate vote
    Introduction: In an effort to revitalize the multibreed class, the board is presenting a proposal for consideration by the delegates that would increase the NAFA title points earned in the multibreed class. If adopted, the following change would become effective October 1, 2012.

    Question for delegate vote: Should NAFA amend the point-count rules for the multibreed class so that each dog on a team that runs with a recorded time less than 24 seconds earns 30 points; from 24 to 27.999 seconds earns 7 points; and from 28 to 31.999 seconds earns 2 points?

    Pros: This increase is designed to recognize and reward the comparative difficulty of assembling a multibreed team where every dog running is of a different breed, counting a mix as a single breed. Of all the classes, multibreed perhaps does the most to stimulate interest in flyball because people who have dogs at home can identify with the variety of breeds running and visualize doing so with their own dog.

    Cons: This proposal cheapens the points earned by dogs who run with clubs not able to field multibreed teams and makes titles too easy to get. There should be one point system for all.

  • May 23, 2011 - Dale Smith resigned from the Election Committee.
  • April 22, 2011 - The Board has received the written resignation from Greg Stopay. We thank Greg for his years of service on the Board and hard work- he devoted hundreds of hours to NAFA.

    The Board has appointed Sam Ford to fill out the remainder of Greg Stopay's term. We are very fortunate that we can call on Sam Ford. He is already involved in the CanAm as well as other NAFA projects and is able to devote the time needed to fill out Greg's term.

  • April 16, 2011 - The Board heard Disciplinary Action DC #2011-1 at a hearing 4/16/11 and made the following findings:

    “We find that the disciplinary charge was not sustained, but that the accused administered an inappropriate correction in the ring and that correction was administered to another team’s dog. This action merited a reprimand, but did not merit disciplinary action.”

  • March 25, 2011 - A working agenda for the April 16-17, 2011 NAFA BOD meeting has been posted. The board meeting will be held at Marriott Detroit Metro Airport, 30559 Flynn Road, Romulus, Michigan 48174. The meeting is scheduled to start at 10 a.m.

    Please note that the first item on the agenda is a disciplinary hearing which is closed to the public pursuant to Section 5.4. The meeting will be open to the public at the conclusion of that agenda item. The meeting is currently scheduled to be held over two days and is expected to conclude early Sunday afternoon.

  • July 19, 2010 - Proposed changes to the Articles of Incorporation and Bylaws
  • NAFA is a nonprofit Michigan directorship entity. As its corporate documents hadn’t been reviewed for many years, we hired Jane Forbes, who is with Michigan law firm of Dykema and serves as co-chair of the State Bar of Michigan Nonprofit Corporations Committee, to review NAFA’s articles of incorporation and bylaws to make sure they comply with the most current Michigan statutes and to bring them into the 21st century, legally and practically. The attached proposed revisions to the articles of incorporation and bylaws are the product of that work.
    We’ve put up both redline and clean copies, so you can track the proposed revisions easily. Some involve moving language that doesn’t belong in bylaws to the corporate policies or rules; an example is the reference to dog CRN’s in Article III, which will be moved to Chapter 3 of the Rules of Racing since we’re advised this shouldn’t be in the bylaws. Others are more technical, such as the revision to the “deemed consent” provision for board approvals of administrative matters, or are designed to match the bylaws to actual practice, such as the composition and names of the various board committees. Still others are designed to state things more clearly than they are now. Finally, some are intended to modernize our documents so we can use outside services, like internet voting services, that weren’t even thought of when the original documents were created.
    Amendments take a two-thirds vote of the Board of Directors. The Board plans to consider these at its August 7 meeting. These are a work in progress and NAFA welcomes comments and suggestions from NAFA community. Please send them directly to the Board members, whose contact information is listed on this site, or directly to the Rules committee.

  • *NOTE FROM the NAFA Treasurer: "Upon review of the CanAm 2009 income and expenses on the P&L reports for fiscal year 2008/2009 and for the first fiscal quarter 2009/2010, I certify that the numbers are correct. Upon review, the cost of prizes were inadvertently left off of a manually prepared report that I provided to the ED for his presentation at the January BOD meeting and AGM. This mistake resulted in an understatement of the CanAM 2009 losses.
    As noted, we are actively seeking sponsors to help offset expenses for future CanAm events. NAFA has created a sponsorship DVD to help with this effort. Suggestions for potential sponsors are gladly accepted. Please contact me with the company's name, address and contact person and we will promptly make contact. Or, if you just have an idea of a company that you think would be a good sponsor let me know and I will take care of finding the address, etc."
