from March 18, 2009 Governing Board meeting: Motion by Pam,
second by John. Unanimous approval.
Results and Promotions:
Llama Banner has agreed to list show results from ILR shows. We
will have a conversation with Llama Life II and Lama-Link to see
if they are also willing to list results.
Committee – presented by Pam Jensen. No meeting to
report on. The committee has started files for all approved
rules from all committees that can be easily printed into an
on-line ILR-SD Manual when all rules are approved. The
format will be easy to read and easy to access. The
committee is planning a Face-to-Face to formulate the rules
book. A published version will not be available until 2010.
The Governing Board discussed allowing members to have
points recorded from open shows. The motion made was: For
2009 only, open show superintendents that hire an ILR
approved judge may request that ILR points could be awarded
to ILR-SD members/exhibitors for a fee of $2.00 per head per
show recording fee. Superintendants should contact
the ILR office before the date of their show, have the
show judge verified and point recording approved. It will be
the exhibitors responsibility to submit their own placing
and show results, and to pay the $2.00 fee on their own.
Motion by Tami, second by Kathi. Unanimous approval.

minutes did not arrive until just before the board call so a
second Governing Board call was scheduled to give the
committee time to review the requests.
Committee – presented by John McDougall.
The committee reviewed Mike Haumschild as a
performance judge and Linda Hayes as an alpaca fleece judge
and she would require a judging clinic and/or an
apprenticeship for llama fleece judging. Motion to approve
by Jon, second by Mary Jo. Unanimous approval. As a side
note, the deadline for consideration for grandfathering of
judges into the ILR-SD for 2009 only has passed. The
exception to this would be judges who are currently in
Camelid judging apprenticeships; they may apply for
grandfathering consideration after completion of their
apprenticeship. All judges who are already grandfathered for
2009 will need to recertify for 2010. A judges
training/certification program is in development and
scheduled for governing board approval in mid-July.
