2017 GSPCA election
Corresponding Secretary: Jan Budnick [email Jan]
I am taking this opportunity to introduce myself and let the membership know that I am running for the position of Corresponding Secretary.
While I had grown up with Boxers, my husband had grown up with Shorthairs and insisted that the kids would grow up with one also. Our search led us to the Little Shelter in Huntington, NY where a purebred GSP was waiting for adoption. We added Bo to our family in 1992 and never looked back. We were smitten and have been devoted to the breed ever since. Our dogs have participated in and earned titles in Hunt Tests, Rally, Dock Diving, Barn Hunts and Conformation. We personally hunt with our dogs and enjoy hiking and traveling with them.
My everyday working life as office manager for a large medical practice has me well prepared for the position of Corresponding Secretary. Priorities are set and tasks are managed on a timely basis. I am also the Secretary for the LIGSPC and recording secretary for the Westbury Kennel Association. Both positions offer a level of communication and organization that will be an asset should the membership decide to elect me. In addition to the above positions, I have also served as Hunt Test Secretary, Hunt Test Chairperson, Match Show Chair, and Public Education Coordinator for the LIGSPC. Should the membership elect me, I am willing to give up my current positions at the end of their term and devote my time to Corresponding Secretary for the GSPCA.
My goal for the position is to encourage transparency between the Board and the membership. Open communication between the Board and the membership is paramount to representing the wishes of our members.
Thank you in advance for considering me for the position of Corresponding Secretary.
