    Default Alaska Taxidermists association ????

    OK,
    I am putting this out there again just because I have gotten so many people lately that would like to see a REAL Taxidermists association in Alaska.

    If you would like to be INVOLVED with bringing to life a Real association that stands for & is a leading light for taxidermists in our state, please email me your name address & phone #.

    If we can get enough folks that will be dedicated to make this happen , we can start on it This summer.

    I am talking about having a Minimum panel of 6 Board Members.

    It would entail getting ALL Permits & Licenses needed by the state of Alaska.


    Monthly Facebook or Phone meetings.


    A yearly get together somewhere in the state where we can host an ACTUAL Competition where ANYONE is envited. with Youth, Novice, Proffessional, & Masters divisions.

    & use Judges that are Certified & QUALIFIED to ensure Fair & ethical judging for the catagories of their Specialty.

    Next would be ATLEAST 2 Seminars given by the judges per day of the convention, or given by a person that has a specialty in an area that will be helpful to the people that attend.

    Next would Be an ACTUAL Awards banquet & Dinner, where the taxidermists can be Honored for there hard work & accomplishments aswell as share in the camaraderie that this function can bring out.

    An association that is a Learning tool & in some cases just a way to Hone or bring out the innermost Quality that you have.




    Hey This is starting to sound like what an actual Taxidermy association would be like.

    If you would like to know more & become an active participant please email me at the below address. Please put Alaska Taxidermists in the subject line.

    This can be done if WE get involved.


    Thanks

    RJ,

    I started this ball rolling a couple weeks ago with some correspondence to the Anchorage SCI chapter about changing the format of the competition. I offered to help in any way possible. I will send you the email string. Also contacted Yox about judging and he was open to it. Count me in!

    RJ you know I am in for what ever you need from me. I may not be a taxidermist but I will support your cause and help in any way I can. If you need me to post up on my website I can also assist with that as well. Good luck with this as I feel it would be a great asset to the local community.

    Hi Andrea,

    For some reason Clearwire no longer hosts Emails, It would have been nice if they would have let their customers know that they were terminating .

    My new email is protaxidermy1@gmail.com

    I am still working on the paperwork & all the legal mumbo jumbo.

    I will get ahold of everyone as soon as we have some concrete info.

    Thanks

    Hi RJ,

    Just want to thank you for spearheading this. It is a big job and I, for one, appreciate that someone who has some insight into the logistics is involved in getting things rolling. Let me know if you need anything.
