Increase the USCA Judges Release Fees for non USCA Events

EB Ballot: #12-17 

Motion by Nathaniel Roque, DOJ, second by Sean O’Kane, USCA Treasurer, to increase the USCA Judges Release Fees for non USCA Events to $ 150.00 for all non USCA Club level Trials and $ 300.00 for all non USCA Championships.

Background: USCA maintains the ongoing education of our judges through annual judges meetings and ongoing continuing education. This keeps our USCA Judges College at the forefront of all International Working Dog Judges programs. There is a high cost associated to maintaining this level of education and professionalism which is covered by USCA. We already have a release fee approved in the amount of $50 for non USCA Clubs and $ 100 for non USCA Championships, this increase is to stay current with the increased cost of maintaining our USCA Judges College.

The German Shepherd Schutzhund Club of Canada (GSSCC) is exempt from these fees due to our standing agreement of reciprocity; we are both North American WUSV members and have always shared judges.
