    Being relatively new to RTF, is there any further info out on the new organization yet? Been looking around a little bit, but haven't seen any - unless of course I don't know what I'm looking for or I'm just that ignorant.

    Combsie,

    I'm not sure what your question is. The organization was just officially announced above. I don't believe any other place on the net is going to give you much more information today, than what's written here.

    Please go to their website to get the information straight from the horse's mouth. I have a link above. The site is www.nfra.us . There is a wealth of information on that website - I'd venture to say you could tie up the next 3 hours or more reading all of the information there including complete bylaws and running rules.

    We also have two board members that frequent this board and would be likely willing to address questions.

    Chris,
    Thanks for the reply. Okieduck sent me a PM refering me to the website, which for some reason did not come up for me.
    Curious to know your thoughts on the new group?

    Note all: Redstar above IS on the board of the NFRA - he's one of your primary go-to guys to learn more.

    It's all good!

    Default Why?

    RedStar,

    I can't find an answer to my question on your website -- "Why?"

    Why a =new= organization?

    What was your problem with the existing organizations?

    Did you try to effect change in the existing organizations before starting another one? I know you are ex-NAHRA. But did you approach AKC and/or HRC?

    In some ways I think it is easier to just start a new organization than to effect change in the original one. But the easy way is very rarely ever the more worthwhile way.

    Thanks.

    Keith,

    Bylaws have been written and approved by the Board of Directors. An electronic downloadable file similar to what we have provided for the Rules page was suppose to have been included on the website. Being to first day we have had the site up, I’m sure you’ll forgive a few bugs. We are working to get the bylaws posted as quickly as we can. Thanks for your patience.
