Draft Privacy Policy Released for Comment

The Lead Pack set out to create a privacy policy to help protect the personal information of the Club’s members. To help the policy fit the Club, the Lead Pack is looking for your feedback on this draft! Please email any feedback to leadpack@northstarkennelclub.org.

Lead Pack Reduces Size, Prepares for Upcoming Elections

The Lead Pack is the Board of Directors of the North Star Kennel Club.  We manage official club events and events calendar; manage the club’s money and policies; maintain our online presence (website, Facebook, and Twitter), and produce this newsletter, among other duties.

As a volunteer organization, we depend on you to be involved and power our events.

The Lead Pack, among other reasons, felt that 12 board seats in a 70+ member organization was unsustainable. That is roughly one Lead Pack member for every five Club members. With a number of members having already served on the Lead Pack, that reduces the number of possible replacements to an even smaller pool.

Serving on the Lead Pack is only one way to be involved in the Kennel Club. As you can see from the “Volunteer Opportunities” reminder below, we have plenty of needs that do not require the level of commitment that the Lead Pack does.

We are looking for your ideas, your talents, and your time.

If you are willing to volunteer and don’t know how to become involved, please reach out to us.  If you know someone is seeking to become more involved and is not being reached by this message, please reach out to us. You can contact us via our Facebook page and groups; email the Lead Pack at leadpack@northstarkennelclub.org, and give us your ideas and feedback via the feedback form on our website.

If you are interested in serving on the Lead Pack, the nomination period for the upcoming elections begins at our next monthly membership meeting on November 20. We will send out separate emails to current members covering membership renewals, elections, and our upcoming Membership Appreciation Party!

Monthly Membership Meetings for 2019

As a reminder, our monthly membership meetings for 2019 are the third Wednesday of every month at 7pm, and are held in the Lower Level Conference Room of 2021 E Hennepin Ave. These meetings are open to the public, so anyone can come, listen in, and share their two cents.

  • large NSKC patches ($25)
  • small NSKC patches ($10)
