What's going on

Non-ASFA folks might want to just keep on moving... Last weekend I was in Phoenix for the ASFA ACoD. I thought the convention went well, even though we didn't pass the Discipline article that had been demanded at last year's convention. I'm amazed that this didn't pass. Last year, the uproar was about the ASFA BoD getting involved in what basically boils down to a breeder dispute. The floor of the ACoD was outraged (even though this wasn't included in the official minutes... hmmm) and demanded that CRC re-work Article IX (discipline) to include some limit on jurisdiction. Unfortunately, in the manner of the ACoD, delegates were either too unfamiliar with the background or were too involved with their own agendas to vote for what was obviously a step forward.

If you're reading this and you're involved in the "legislative" process of ASFA, please feel free to request information about this. Luckily, the issue will come back in front of the ACoD next year for another vote.
