Dear ILR Llama Owners,

re: An urgent message from the ILR Show Division Finance Committee Chairman

The ILR Show Division is well under way and has a hard working and dedicated group of committee members working diligently to make sure this opportunity becomes a operative organization as quickly as possible.

The ILR Board, from the inception, affirmed that Registry funds could not be used to finance the Show Division. Therefore, now that the Board has heard our voices and agreed to proceed, we have an immediate need for donations to fund the preliminary set-up expenses and programming requisite of this Show Division.

For those who originally committed funds subject to the ILR Board proceeding with the Show Division,  those funds are needed as soon as you are able to send them. To the many other members out there . . . we certainly need your help! If every member would remit something (even your Friday night pizza money) . . .  it would make everyone’s task just a little easier. 

For this venture to happen, and after "crunching the numbers," we must raise $50K in the next couple of weeks!!! This may sound like a lot . . . but if everyone devotedly does their part . . . it will make our job easier and we all will benefit. This initial generation of funds will only encompass the immediate administrative and programming requirements of the show division, additional funds will have to be raised throughout the coming year. Once established, it is still the intention that the Show Division will be self-funding.

The ILR and its subsequent Divisions belong to you - the membership! The Board of Directors, the Governing Board and the various Division Committees are there to serve you  . . . the member! But we need your help, collaboration and financial support! Alone, we will struggle, but with the combined support of all the membership, we can be more successful and make rapid progress. In conveying your donations, please clearly indicate your payment as a donation to the Show Division.

We would like to take this opportunity to say “Thank You” to those who have already sent in their donations. Remember, for anyone whose contribution is $1,000 or more, you will automatically be given a Lifetime Membership in the ILR Show Division. If you need to extend your donation over a period of time . . . just let us know so that we may budget accordingly.

On behalf of the countless members who are involved in the organizational development, I offer our special “Thank-you” to the membership . . . it is because we all share the one common goal . . . the love of our llamas  . . . that we have set aside many hours to promise each of you a Show organization that you can be proud to be a part of!

Here's how to get your DONATION to the ILR office:

1) Send your check (with a Show Division notation) to PO Box 8, Kalispell, MT 59903.
2) Call the ILR office (406) 755-3438 to be billed on your account or to pay by credit card.
3) Pay Online here https://secure.lamaregistry.com/membership_app.php.  Look for "ILR Show Division" under "Donations".
