2019 GSPCA election

Tiffany CessnaNortheast Director: Tiffany Cessna [email Tiffany]

Allow me to introduce myself.  My Name is Tiffany Cessna and I reside in Stewartstown, Pennsylvania with my husband and our four Shorthairs.  I have been involved with German Shorthaired Pointers and the GSPCA for a little over 5 years now.  I have been very fortunate to have mentors with 30 + years in this amazing breed, who have truly helped me become a better competitor, breeder and member.  This has also shown me to move forward you must use the knowledge of the past with the resources of the future to grow.  I feel as Board of Director, you should have the ability to use the vast wealth of knowledge held by our membership to help guide us as a club into the future.  I would love to have to opportunity to show each and every member in the Northeastern section that I am that person.  

At a very young age I knew I wanted to work with animals, at twelve I spent my summer job shadowing at a local veterinary clinic, the next summer I was offered a position there and I have been in the veterinary field ever since.  I currently manage a busy 24/7 Pet Emergency and Specialty Center in York, PA.  Here we see any and everything from foreign body ingestions to major orthopedic reconstructions.  I feel my vast experience with organization, and leadership from this position, will be an asset if elected.    

I started out in Juniors Showmanship when I was just 8 years old, I then went on to title multiple dogs in obedience and agility.  I enjoy the multitude of venues our amazing and versatile shorthairs excel in, I currently participate in confirmation, Obedience, Rally, Hunt tests, NAVHDA, Canine Dog Citizen test, and more recently lure coursing.  I look forward to adding new venues to that list with the litter I bred.  I am also very excited to work towards my first bred by champion, ROM and so much more.         

I feel to truly make a change for the better you have to get involved and be open to others options.  I am active in both the GSPCA and a few of our local breed clubs.  I am currently on the Show Committee for the Mason Dixon German Shorthaired Pointer Club, and I am a member of the Schuylkill Valley German Shorthaired Pointer Club.  For the GSPCA, I serve as the Annual Awards Committee Chair, I am a member of the Health and Wellness Committee and a member of the Triple R Committee (Retrieve, retain, and Recognition), I am also handing the ads for 2019 NSS catalog.  These positions have been extremely rewarding and I look forward to what the future will bring for each committee and club.

If elected I will represent the voices of the Northeastern members to the best of my ability, and insure members be kept up to date will all club matters in a timely fashion.  I also want to find new and better ways to get information to members in real time and be more available to each NE members.  My Goal will be to better the communication between the Northeast members and the board, to insure each and every member has a voice.  I feel a huge part of this position is supporting our members and our local clubs, because without each and every one of you we would not be able to do this.

I would like to sincerely thank the nominating committee for their recommendation as nominee for the position of Northeast Director.  I have thoroughly enjoyed everything I have been involved in with the GSPCA, and if elected I am ecstatic to jump into this position and represent the Northeastern membership.  It would be an honor to serve the Northeast Section - Connecticut, Delaware, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, and Vermont.  I welcome and encourage any and all questions or comments, I can be reached via email at gspmom14@gmail.com or on my mobile phone at 443-758-4741.  Thank you for taking the time to learn more about me and I truly hope to have your support for the North Eastern Director for the 2019-2021 elections!
