SC.19.02 Name Change from Scent Detection to Scent Search

Motion by Creelman

I move to accept this motion from the Scent Detection Committee.

 

Committee Recommendation:

Scent Detection Committee puts this motion forward for the ASCA BOD approval.

Name Change from Scent Detection to Scent Search

Motion by: Donna Armstrong

Second by: Christine Reedy

Motion Statement: I move to approve the motion to change the name of our committee and program to Scent Search.

 

The decision for this name was made after 30 days of discussion, a committee poll narrowing down from 10 choices to 3 and then a unofficial poll taken from our 8 members with a  vote 7-1 for this name.

 

Current Wording:

Scent Detection

 

Proposed Wording:

Scent Search

 

Comments/Rationale: This motion is being made as we feel that our current name, Scent Detection and initials SDC will be confused with other ASCA programs.

 

Affected: Business Office, ASCA BOD, Committee and competitors and I O Webmaster as the name will need to be changed on our site.

 

Effective Date: Immediately after vote of the ASCA BOD.

 

Results of Committee Vote:

SD.19.15 Welcome to the ASCA Stockdog Program Brochure

Motion by Creelman

I move to approve the Stockdog Committee motion for the Stockdog Program Brochure.

 

Committee Recommendation:

Title: Adding Welcome to the Stockdog Program tri fold to the ASCA website

ASCA Welcome Tri-Fold Final June 2019

Motion by Art Landry

Second by Jan Wesen

I move to have the attached Welcome to the Stockdog Program Brochure stored on the ASCA website with a link to it so that members and affiliates are able to download it and print it as a resource for their events. I further move to recommend that ASCA distribute the Brochure at the discretion of the ASCA Board of Directors.

 

Comments/Rationale: The affiliates and stockdog community in general have been asking for resources to use at Fun Days, Intro events and to advertise the Stockdog Program. This handout is a step in providing those resources. It could also serve as an invitation to join the Stockdog Program when replying to member applications and inquiries.

 

Affected: Anyone potentially interested in the ASCA Stockdog Program, Business Office and the Webmaster of the ASCA website.

 

Effective Date: As soon as practical for the Webmaster and ASCA Board of Directors.

 

Results of Committee Vote:

Approve: 10

Oppose: None

Abstain: None

Non-Voting: 2

There were no comments. The vote passes the committee.
