RMBTC will be having its first formal meeting by phone conference on 4/4 at 6:30 pm PST for the Acting Board and all members. All members will be sent an email with the call in information, agenda and the proposed Bylaws. Thank you to everyone in the Biewer breed community who have given support for this new club which has the aim of uniting the various Biewer breed interests in promoting unity, fairness of representation and to work with the various entities for the betterment of the breed. Our goal is to be transparent, open minded, and to have fun with the wonderful breed.
As one of the acting Secretaries, I wanted to get a phone conference call set up for our first formal meeting for the Acting Board and members. I will provide a conference line for us all to use. Do you prefer a week night or a Saturday morning? We have people in different time zones so a weeknight would likely be 6:30 pm PST, 7:30 MST, 8:30 CST, and 9:30 EST and Saturday a 8 am PST, 9 MST, 10 CST, 11 EST. Likely 1 to 1.5 hours long. On the agenda we need to discuss possible bylaws, budget for greetings to new members, possible 2018 Fun Event, and most of all what do we want to be one of our main focus going forward with the breed? Do we want to become a regional AKC club, stay more an unaffiliated club at this point, and what other directions do you want the club to service for our membership and the Biewer community? I will send out an email earlier this week to all members with the dates and time and put it in here as an event. How does Wednesday 3/28 night or the week of 4/2 or Saturday 4/7 look like for the club members and Acting Board.

We are very excited to announce a new and different type of Biewer Club. It will be something for any Biewer lover, pet, show, fun, rally, etc. It is not meant to take the role of any other club set up within AKC, UKC, BCCA or other worthy Biewer fancier types of organization. We have more in common than what separates us. We are a place for likeminded people to work together to educate and be involved. We plan to have a fun event in 2018 catering to the pet and show person alike. In addition, we hope we can establish credibility as a group that comes together to have fun and assists with pulling the various Biewer interests together. It is hoped to be a fun and great club with one interest-Love of the Biewer. Our club is called Rocky Mountain Biewer Terrier Club with a great new temporary board with a wide variety of experience to assist in making it a success. We will hold elections for the board once we get things started. We call it Rocky Mountain as that is the area of the country where the idea started. It is meant for anyone with any and all interest in the Biewer. Let us know what we can do for you!
Board and Members: MARK YOU CALENDARS!
We are having our
first formal meeting by phone conference on Wednesday 4/4 at 6:30 pm PST, 7:30 MST, 8:30 CST and 9:30 EST. We will email you the call in conference number and code with a copy of the proposed Bylaws in the middle of the week. Please do not release the phone call in number to anyone outside the club at this time. We can have open forum meetings later if the membership wishes with those outside the club. Likely 1.5 hour meeting.
We have on the agenda:
1) Introduction of the Acting Board and Members;
2) Discussion of current funds and budget:
3) Do we want to send out a welcome package to members? Any volunteers to look into possible costs? What do we want to put as limit on costs if we want to do it?
4) Discussion of possible Bylaws-any motions for changes? If we receive several requests for edits by email prior to the meeting (proposed Bylaws will be sent out prior to this meeting), we may want to form a committee to review the edits and make recommendations after considering all the requests for edits.
5) Focus for 2018-What do we want to accomplish this year? Fun event? Seek regional AKC club status?
6) How long do we want the Acting Board to assist before elections?
7) Other agenda items to be sent by email by request from members.
