President’s Message

November 2021

Hello to my fellow NAPCH members I hope you, your families and K9 partners are doing well!

Alpena 2021 is complete.  All the reviews this was a huge success. It was good to see tha amount of NAPCH members coming back and training for our future. In the upcoming messages I will reveal the Award winners and new Master Trainers and Trainers. I was informed by the attending members we had approximately 12-15 positive COVID results out of the 335 attendees.  I am happy to annouce all have recovered.  At the opening ceremony a tribute to Jason Lagore took place in his honor. The membership also conducted a vote and rescinded the earlier Executive Board recommendation by returning length of certifications to be good for two years insted of one.  This does not stop any member from continuing to certify every year if chosen. The membership also voted to continue Executive Board member Bob Loken as a Trustee for the upcoming years.  Bob was able to witness this vote live from the meeting virtually. I am also touched by the Memberships continuing cofidence vote in keeping me as your President.  From the bottom of my heart I thank you! We will be deciding how a ballot will be coming to you for one Trustee position that needs to be decided.  As the Seminar begins to settle for 2021 please pay attention to future President messages.

Please pay attention to Facebook and the website for further updates.

This Organization will remain strong!  Please stay safe and healthy!!

– Terry Foley (President)
