Request for Feedback: Judges’ Books and Score Sheets Cost-Saving Measures

Dear ASCA Members,

The following message was sent to all ASCA Affiliate Clubs today and I wanted to share here to spread the word. If you are an Affiliate Representative and you did not get this message please contact me.

Thank you,

Dear Affiliate Clubs,

We hope this letter finds you well. The ASCA Board of Directors recently discussed a suggestion from our members to charge affiliates for judges’ books and score sheets as a potential cost-saving measure. We understand that many of you are seeking ways to save time and resources, and we value your input on this matter.

During our deliberations, we considered various factors, such as the cost breakdown for ASCA’s judges’ books, the need for time to adapt to a paperless system, and the challenges of going paperless at events held outdoors without easy access to electronics. We also acknowledged the importance of using the existing inventory of judges’ books and score sheets before implementing any changes.

The Board is currently exploring the idea of a trial period for these changes, during which exhibitors could receive electronic score sheets and request hard copies if desired. We also discussed the possibility of offering affiliates a choice between handling paperwork themselves or paying the Business Office for mailing required books and materials.

As we continue to evaluate these potential changes, we kindly request your feedback on the following topics:

Your preferences regarding handling paperwork (in-house or through the Business Office)

Your thoughts on transitioning to a paperless system

Any challenges or concerns you foresee in implementing these changes

Your input is invaluable as we work to create cost-effective and time-efficient solutions for our affiliate clubs. Please send your feedback to by May 1, 2023. We appreciate your commitment to the Australian Shepherd Club of America and look forward to hearing your thoughts.
