Amend 2018 fiscal Year Budget

EB Ballot: #35-17

EB Ballot: #35-17 Amend 2018 Fiscal Year Budget

Motion by Michele Scarberry, NBW and seconded by Michele Clubb, Secretary, to amend the 2018 fiscal year budget by adding expenses for the National Show not to exceed $25,000.


The 2018 fiscal year budget did not include a line item for the National Show.  Typically the budget includes this line item however it was left out as it was assumed that USCA would choose their team members from the GSDCA Sieger Show.  However, GSDCA Sieger show in 2018 is not until September, which is after the WUSV Universal Sieger in June 2018.  So, USCA needs to host a National Show so we can select our team members.

Way Out West Schutzhund Club submitted a bid and the EB approved the bid for them to host the event in April 2018.  (EB Ballot #29-17)

We are asking for $25,000 to help pay for the expenses of the National Show. The current USCA Budget has a projected income of $611,320 and projected expenses of $601,200 which gives USCA a projected net income of $10,120.  The $25,000 is below what has been budgeted for this event in the past.  After talking over where we believe we can make cuts in the budget, we feel we can put on a quality National Show for the requested $25,000.  USCA will be recouping some of the expense and it’s not a net $25,000 expense but will be mitigated by income of the event.
