that
indicates

nor

KCA
title
medallions
Coordinator
Casey
Kohler
raised
concern
of
the
high
volume
of
title
medallions
that
are
now

being
sent
due
to
the
proliferation
of
AKC
titling
events.
New
Agility
and
Rally
titles
have
been
added
continuously

and
more
performance
titles
are
on
the
horizon.
Two
years
ago
six
to
ten
medallions
were
mailed
each
month,
that

has
risen
to
20
to
40
medallions;
So
far
in
2010
over
300
medallions
have
been
mailed
to
new
AKC
titlists.

Heather

made
motion
to
add
an
option
on
the
dues
to
notice
to
‘opt
out’
of
receiving
title
medallions
and
to
only
send
1

medallion
per
dog
to
the
first
owner
listed
on
the
AKC
registration
with
provision
additional
owners
could

purchase
a
medallion
for
a
nominal
fee;
