Monthly Meetings


The next meeting of the Asheville Kennel Club will be:
3 October 2023 6:00 PM
Leicester Public Library
1561 Alexander Road
Leicester NC

Please be reminded that dogs and food are not allowed inside the library building.  Please also note that the start time is 6:00 PM, since it is getting dark earlier and this is an important meeting, so we want to encourage all our members to attend. 

Also, the earlier start time will ensure we can accommodate the library staff by ending before their closing time.

The October meeting agenda includes the report of the nominating committee regarding the proposed slate of officers and board members for 2024, which will be voted on at our annual meeting in November.  The proposed slate at this time is as follows:

• President – Michael Redfox

• Vice President: Joy Ciaccio

• Secretary: Ed Sheppard

• Treasurer: NO candidate at this time

• Member at Large: Randy LeVine

• Member at Large: Bob Morris

• Show Chair: Moshe Reshef

• AKC Delegate: Corie Haylett

This October meeting is the opportunity (and the only opportunity, according to our bylaws) for members to make officer and board nominations from the floor.  Thus, this is an important meeting in our club calendar.  If you are considering making a nomination from the floor, please review the procedure and constraints for doing so in the paragraphs below, which have been excerpted directly from our bylaws.
