Happy spring everyone. We all hope that everyone is happy and safe and welcoming those beautiful babies. Our current craziness is stressing everyone so perhaps spring is natures way of showing us the way up and out.
As we obviously already know our spring sales were postponed and to that end the Lolli Bros, rescheduled the majority of their sale to May 13 through the 15th. Watusi will sell on Thursday May 14.
Due to the craziness that has enveloped us all, the WWA Board of Directors has decided not to host our annual spring fling and get-together. The Board of Directors will hold s meeting at the Comfort Inn at 5:00 pm in the hotel meeting room. Although our meetings are open to all members we ask that no one other than board members attend so that we can address proper social distancing. After the meeting the members will be available to anyone that wishes to visit or address issues. We still request that all social distancing protocols be observed.
On September 25 the World Watusi Association Board of Directors held their annual reorganization meeting in conjunction with the Lolli Bros. Exotic Animal Sale in Macon, Missouri. We had a packed list of agenda items to address. The results of the election for the Board were announced with the winners being Pat Burnett, Matt Moffat and Brian Sims. We all want to extend our congratulations to each member. The annual election for the Officer’s for the 2019 through 2020 year resulted in Blake Edwards, President: Garret Judd, Vice-President: Cindi Darling, Secretary and Barry Retchloff, Treasurer. All the contact information for the Board and Officers can be found on this website.
We wish to thank Pat Burnett for his previous years of serving as our President and Sheri Gurr for her tireless service as our Treasurer and director. As you all know this is a volunteer organization of non-compensated individuals and we are very lucky to have all of these people willing to serve and donate their time.
We will be covering all of the items addressed at our various meetings and will be addressing possible By Law changes that all of us must agree upon with our next vote.
One of the major items that was passed at this meeting is a temporary change in the Lifetime Membership fees. This fee is presently a one time charge of $500.00. The Board was asked to address this item and has implemented a new one time fee of $250.00 to be in effect from September 25, 2019 through February 1, 2020. When you receive your reminder of 2020 dues we will remind all members of this option. We sincerely hope that many of our members will take advantage of this opportunity.
