ILR BOD Report - Karen Baum

Steve Auld is in Kalispell at the ILR office working with Allen and Paul to evaluate the systems and equipment. He will be making recommendations to the ILR Board as to what is needed going forward. Steve will be contacting the local technical school about getting an intern to help out with system work.

Work to get the Top Ten listings back online is being moved up in priority.

 1. Judges Committee - Tami:

The Committee worked with Performance and Youth on a proposal for Novice Performance that was previously submitted for a vote.

2. Halter Committee - Niki:

The revised judging card was submitted for a vote to the Governing Board via e-mail and was approved.

3. Guidelines Committee - Debbie Arendas

Halter Committee is asking for an extension of time from the November 30 deadline to get updated pictures for the Guidelines and the new Youth Judging manual. Agreed to hold until December 6, pending Debbie contacting Ray, who is drafting the revisions.

Harvey made a motion to recommend to the Committee to write rules that make Roberts Rules of Order as the Governing Board's official parliamentary procedures. Second by Kat, all approved.

Debi made a motion that rules be written by the Guidelines Committee to allow seven days to respond to an e-mail vote, second by Karen. All approved.

After some additional discussion, Tami made a motion to amend the previously approved motion to allow a minimum of 48 hours and a maximum of 7 days. Second by Debbie A., all approved.

4. Performance Committee - Tom Rothering

The Committee had submitted via e-mail a revised Novice Performance rule proposal just before the meeting. There was again extensive and exhausting discussion on the subject prior to a vote. The Governing Board voted 4 yes, 4 no and 2 abstentions. The motion failed and was sent back to the Performance Committee for further work.

5. Youth Committee - Debbie Shellabarger

The Halter Committee is working on the pictures for the Youth Judging manual (and for the Guidelines).

6. Fleece Committee - reported by Judy Ross

Current open issues will continue to be worked on in the coming year. Fleece Champion certificates are still on the "to do" list.

Chairman's Report:

Harvey has been working with ALSA after a situation arose at a show where exhibitors who were not ALSA members were required to become ALSA members in order to show in the ILR-SD show. The ALSA Board agreed that this was not proper and is amending their rules to prohibit this practice at ALSA sanctioned shows.

Harvey made a motion to add a rule to the SD Guidelines that show management shall not require any exhibitor to join any other show association or sanctioning body (such as ALSA, LFA and others) in order to show at an ILR-SD sanctioned show. Second by Bill, all approved the motion.

Harvey presented current ILR and Show Division membership numbers and a comparison to last year. A brief discussion of membership requirements followed.

Gathering Report - Harvey Pool

The list of suggested judges has been compiled and sent to the co-chairs, Sharon Carrier and Terry Duespohl.

Harvey will be the ILR contact with the co-chairs.

Sponsorships - Debi has designed a sponsor form where sponsors can designate where they want their sponsor money to go, including a general designation.

Ribbons - Kathi has the ribbons and is just about done with and inventory of them. She will need to know where to send them.

Old Business: none.

New Business: none

Meeting adjourned at  10:25 p.m. EST.  Motion to adjourn by Kathi, second by Tami. All were in favor.

Respectfully submitted,

Bill Safreed, ILR Secretary
