We will be trying a new approach to getting news and info to membership. It was suggested at the last BOD meeting that in lieu of a newsletter, we create a 'news' page on the website. If anyone has news or info they would like to have appear on the page, please send to Lois Olund (membership director) email@example.com and we will work to get it up and running.
If you would like to volunteer to help work/maintain the website, please contact a board member, we would welcome the help.
We know that the best way to promote our lovely breed is for people to get them in front of the public eye. To that end, we are producing 2' x 3' banners to be used when doing a breed booth or when out in front of the public. If you are interested in getting one for your next show or fair, please contact Virginia (firstname.lastname@example.org).

We are putting together a Survey Monkey survey to Active members to see what your thoughts are on several topics. When you get your survey, please take time to fill it out, as it is a way to gauge the support or lack of, for several different ideas. Anyone who would like to work on putting the survey together, or who may have topics for consideration, please contact Virginia.
The NAWSA has established a committee tasked with exploring ways to promote the Wensleydale to young shepherds, contact Carolynn (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Allyson ( email@example.com ) to become involved.
