January 2023 Member Meeting

Greetings Fellow RMC Members,

I hope this message finds you wrapping up a successful hunting season, and everybody, member, family, and dog alike, healthy coming into the New Year.

We have some quick chapter business to take care of, and a chapter meeting is in order to wrap this business up. The meeting will be at 7:00pm on Sunday, January 15th via Zoom (information to join is at the bottom of this email).

The NAVHDA International Annual Meeting is being held at the end of January in South Dakota. There are several motions proposed by other chapters for consideration before the International Board of Directors. We as a chapter have a chance to vote on these and express our position on these motions to the International Board. At the bottom of this message are links to the motions proposed by the other NAVHDA chapters for you to read; there are an unusual number of motions for consideration, but thankfully, a number of them are related to the same subject. As a chapter, we will discuss each motion, comment, and as a Board vote on the motions; the Chapter’s Annual Meeting delegate will present our positions on the motions to the International Board during the Annual Meeting.

Secondly, Pete Corso/Director of Training will present information regarding this year’s handlers clinic.

Third, I’d like to organize an in-person Midwinter Meeting sometime in early February – mid-February; I’ll try to have something in place then, with announcements to follow on the Chapter Facebook page.

Lastly, we will open the floor for other discussion.

The agenda for the meeting is as follows:
Call the Meeting to Order
Take Roll of the Board Members present
Discuss Motions presented to NAVHDA International
Vote on each Motion
Presentation of the 2023 Handlers Clinic – By Pete Corso
Open Floor for Other Discussion
I look forward to the meeting and the upcoming training season.


Tim Griffin
President, RMC NAVHDA
