Addendum to the USCA Breed Survey Regulations & Rules
Motion by Michele Scarberry, NBW, presented on behalf of the BAC, and seconded by Frank Phillips, Vice President, to approve the recommended addendums to USCA Breed Survey R&R (Rules & Regulations) [section 4.3, page 3]
The problem of USCA Only Breed Survey was presented to the BAC for review. Numerous times the USCA Only Survey has mistakenly been sent to Germany for processing. Members have paid the USCA Only processing fee. The Office has incurred the additional SV processing fees, costing USCA money By adding the three (3) addendums it will help to clarify the protocol to our clubs, members, and office staff.
Current R&R last revised 2015: https://www.germanshepherddog.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/07/USCABreedSurveyRegulations.pdf
