Rocky Mountain Chapter Annual Meeting


The RMC Board invites you to its annual meeting on Tuesday Jan. 17 at the Rock Bottom Brewery off CO 36 in Westminster, starting at 5:30 pm. Active members are encouraged to attend – and those interested to learn about RMC NAVHDA are welcome. Please RSVP using the Signup Genius portal and IMG_1839plan to arrive as close to 5 as possible so we can start promptly at 5:30.

RMC NAVHDA experienced strong growth in 2016, more than doubling our membership over previous years. Now our challenge is making sure we meet your needs as a handler and hunter. The annual meeting is where we set our goals for the year – and we need to hear from you.

Key items on the 2017 annual meeting agenda include:img_4834

  • Information on our first-ever indoor training and new handler orientation day in February.
  • A decision on whether to host a NAVHDA Trainer’s Clinic to provide advanced training and handling skills for UT and Invitational handlers.
  • Formalizing 2017 test and training days

As you know, Rocky Mountain Chapter tests fill up quickly, but we don’t accept test registrations until we formalize dates. If you do attend the annual meeting, you’ll be able to register for either or Spring or Fall tests on the spot.

We anticipate being done with the meeting between 6:30 and 7 and look forward to socializing with all members in attendance afterwards. Rock Bottom has a full service restaurant and bar. The Board will provide snacks and finger-food.

Please RSVP so we can plan food and seating accommodations.  We look forward to seeing all members, new and old, as we look forward in anticipation to another great RMC NAVHDA year!

RMC SUMMER BOARD MEETING – Wednesday August 10

To our members:

Thanks to you, it’s been an extraordinary year for the Chapter. Membership is up, attendance at our training days is way up, our volunteers have really stepped forward and we ventured outside our comfort zone and pulled off a successful Handler’s Clinic.

August is a busy month – we’ve got our final training day and Fall Test. Then, if you’re like me, thoughts turn to hunting. So this is a good time to take stock of where we are as a chapter and take up several new business items that  ought to be discussed in person and can’t wait until winter.

So please join us for an RMC board meeting August 10 at the Thornton Cabelas, located just east of I-125 at the W144th exit. We’ll meet in the community room in the northwest corner of the building. The meeting will start at 6 p.m.

Please RSVP if you plan to attend so we can set up seating appropriately.
