    In the Northeast/Midatlantic we have a few amateurs with multiple dogs, but it's the same folks it has always been. We're more likely to hold a stake to wait for a pro or a sandbagger than an amateur with multiple dogs in multiple stakes.

    As I understand it, but I could be wrong......The AKC is a club made up of MEMBER clubs, each of which is represented at its meetings by a delegate, for which there an arduous approval process by the AKC.

    Within the structure of the AKC there are numerous committee posts some more important than others, comprised of the member/delegates, most with long standing membership appointments ... The RFTAC is one such committee .

    With this in mind, I see no usefulness in even considering a person for RFTAC who is not already a member of a MEMBER club, and is one that if not already its delegate, one who the existing club delegate would be willing to step aside for.

    Do the 40 point judges suggested in this thread meet this criteria?

    to answer your question that would be a Yes to those that I mentioned....BUT the other side of the coin would be that members of the RAC who are not affiliated with a specific club would actually be non biased and could not be accused of showing a bias toward a particular club..

    John,

    Glenda Brown, Sally Foster, and Lorna Kolstad are members of an AKC member club. Wendy Pennington is also a member of the same club, but if she has not titled a dog, then would not qualify to be an RAC member representing the western region.

    Correct me if I am wrong Bon ... Your answer in the affirmative means that you represent that those 40 point judges you have mentioned are already delegates to the AKC representing a member club
