Duties and Responsibilities
The Recognition Committee Chair writes letters of congratulations from the Newfoundland Club of America to the owners of new champions. The names of the owners of the new champions are taken from the monthly AKC Gazette listings. Unknown addresses (non-members) are obtained from the NCA Historian who receives this information from the AKC.
An additional function is to make NCA medallions available on request from members whose dogs are AKC Champions of record. The name of the dog is to be engraved on the back of the medallion.
Notice should be submitted to Newf Tide periodically announcing the availability of these awards and how to apply. The chair will require proof of title and ownership with either a copy of the championship certificate or reference to the month and page of the AKC Gazette where it is recorded.
The Chair follows the Group placings of Newfoundlands in the AKC Gazette and writes letters to the owners of these dogs. A master list of all Group and Best in Show winning Newfoundlands is maintained and reported annually in Newf Tide.
The Chair will keep complete records of all requests for medallions including date
received and date and to whom medallion was sent. Accurate financial records will be sent quarterly to the NCA Treasurer detailing cost of medallions, engraving costs, if any, and postage.
