OCTOBER 2007

PRESIDENT'S  MESSAGE
Ted Crawford, President
 

As everyone knows by now, AB1634 “The Pet Extinction Act” was shelved for now due to lack of Senate support.  The fight is not over, the opposition is hard at work preparing to bring AB1634 back in January 2008 in a modified version to attempt passage at that point.  They’re hard at work and we must be also.  January will be here before you know it and we must be ready for Round Two.
 
With the Specialty behind us, and the Legislation fight continuing we will begin work on our next three big projects,  the Meet The Breed Booth at the 2007 Eukanuba Show in Long Beach, hosting the 2008 ACKCSC National Specialty May 5 through May 8, 2008 at the Pomona Sheraton All Suites & Fairplex in Southern California and the 3rd Annual CKCSCSC Specialty will begin on Friday May 9 immediately following the National.  We look forward to having a great week of events, shows, fun and excitement and hope to see everyone there. 


Sincerely,

Ted Crawford, President CKCSCSC
