EB #17 -14

Motion by Dennis Vander Linde, DAL, presented on behalf of the Helper Committee, seconded by Scott Hedger, Mid Central RD, to approve the recommendation of the USCA Helper Committee’s slate of Pre-selected Helpers for the USCA 2014 German Shepherd IPO3 Championship:
  • John Buckingham
  • Marcus Hampton
  • Dominic Scarberry
  • Ryan White
Background: Seven (7) Helpers submitted their qualifications to be considered for pre-selection to perform the helperwork at the 2014 USCA German Shepherd IPO3 Championship.  After reviewing the qualifications of the Helpers, each Helper Committee Member confidentially provided the Helper Program Director/Committee Chair with their selected Helpers for the event.  Per the Helper Program four (4) Helpers must be pre-selected for the USCA German Shepherd IPO3 Championship.  The above referenced Helpers had the highest total number of votes.   Final selection [i.e., front-half, back-half and alternate(s)] will be determined by helper tryouts at the Championship as outlined in the USCA Helper Program.  The remaining helpers who were not pre-selected were notified by email of such, thanked for submitting their qualifications, supporting the USCA Helper Program, and encouraged to submit their qualifications for USCA’s 2015 National Events.
Vote result: 18 YES (Jim Alloway,Frank Phillips,Sean O’Kane,Nathaniel Roque,Karen MacIntyre,Mike Diehl,Claudia Romard,Deb Krsnich,Dennis Vander Linde,Jen Acevedo,Arthur Collins Mark Hamilton,Scott Hedger,Pedro Jimenez,Gail Kendall,  Dena McGowan,Craig Paulus,Don Yelle)    2 Abstain (Mark Scarberry, Michele Scarberry)
