Revised and Approved by ASDCA BOD: 05/07/2011

The Anatolian Shepherd Dog Club of America (ASDCA) depends on volunteer committees comprised of its members to accomplish much of the work necessary for the success of the organization. The ASDCA Board of Directors (BOD) developed a list of committees deemed necessary to meet this requirement. To ensure the successful operation and to maximize the benefits of each committee to the ASDCA, the ASDCA Committee and Appointed Position Guidelines contained within this document were developed. All ASDCA committees and ASDCA members shall adhere to the guidelines contained within this document.

GUIDELINES FOR COMMITTEES WITHOUT A “HOT” BUTTON ARE PENDING.

“Committees that currently have a vacancy contain a blank space within that committee under the title of Chairperson or Committee members. One blank indicates one vacancy, two blanks indicates two vacancies and so forth. If no current opening exists within the committee you are interested in joining, club members are always welcome to volunteer to assist that committee. If any Club member is interested in volunteering to join a committee, they should first contact the Committee Chairperson. If there is no Committee Chairperson, then please contact the BOD Liaison/Adviser of the Committee or any BOD member on that committee for additional information. Any club member(s) interested in Chairing a committee should contact any Club Officer for additional information.”
