2020 Annual Meeting

Date(s) - 01/11/2020
1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Johnstown Scheels All Sports


Each year, the Rocky Mountain Chapter of NAVHDA holds an annual meeting to select its board, establish test dates, set chapter dues and identify special training clinics for the coming year. This year, we are holding our meeting at the Johnstown Scheels on Saturday January 11 from 1:00 to 3:00 pm.

Each annual meeting is important for the Chapter, and this year is no different. As membership grows, new ways will be needed to deliver the training instruction for new and advanced pointing dog handlers. Utility trainers have been relied on to help with Natural Ability trainers, but have not gotten as much help with their own training problems as we would like. As a result, some big changes to the training program will be discussed.

As a volunteer organization, your participation is vital. All board positions are open for election. If you have an interest in serving in one of the positions on the board, please contact Jake Heesacker. Besides board positions, many volunteer opportunities exist to help at training days, tests, and clinics. Please consider volunteering to continue the smooth operation of our events.

Two proposals up for consideration by NAVHDA International will be discussed and voted on by the new board. One would add a fourth judge to the field event of the Invitational. Another would create a system by which the performance of judges for chapter tests could be rated by the Testing Director. Read more about these proposals here.

Beyond business issues, this is always a great opportunity to meet and socialize with like-minded pointing dog trainers.

Until then, happy hunting!


Bookings are closed for this event.

2021 – Annual Meeting

Hello Everyone!
Please see the below message from our Jake Heesacker, our Chapter President. Only paid 2020 and 2021 memberships will receive a link to attend our annual meeting. As you will read below, you can now pay your dues online; making it easier than ever to stay current. THANK YOU to Steve Roberts for making this happen for us.

RMC-NAVHDA, Secretary

Hello RMC NAVHDA members!

I hope each and every one of you has been able to get your dogs out and enjoy some hunting this season!

As hunting season winds down for the year, it is time to start preparing for training and testing season. Every year we kick off the new training season with our annual meeting, and this year will be no different. However, with the current state of COVID-19 and the regulations regarding large indoor gatherings, we will be holding a virtual annual meeting for 2021.

The RMC NAVHDA Annual Meeting will be held virtually on January 9, 2021 at 6:00pm.

The week prior to the meeting I will send out an invite to all of you with the link to the meeting. At that time I will also send all of you a copy of the agenda and chapter financial report. At the meeting we will discuss the dates of our upcoming tests as well as training opportunities in 2021.

The annual meeting is also where the membership has the opportunity to volunteer and vote for positions on the RMC Board of Directors. If you would like to volunteer to serve on the RMC Board of Directors in 2021, please reply to this email so I can reach out to you and discuss opportunities to serve next year.

I would also like to take this time to remind everyone that chapter memberships are due for renewal on January 1, 2021. I would also like to announce that you are now able to renew your membership (or become a new member if you have a friend looking to join the chapter) on the website via credit card at rmc-navhda.com. I would like to shout out a huge THANK YOU to Steve Roberts and Candice Cooper for getting our chapter set up to take credit card payments on the website! It makes paying our memberships more convenient for everybody! Here is the link to the website for memberships: https://www.rmc-navhda.com/join/

Thank you all for being members of our great chapter! Myself and the Board are looking forward to seeing and training with each and everyone of you in 2021!
