Affiliate Club Program

The purpose of the MASCUSA Affiliate Program is to provide support for MASCUSA members that want to form a local specialty club. The Affiliate Club should have an interest in promoting the Miniature American Shepherd at the local level through matches, herding trials, health clinics, seminars, and educational events open to the public. The relevant MASCUSA committees will provide support to the Affiliate Club in the organization, promotion, and execution of such activities. MASCUSA will also work with the Affiliate Club on sponsoring MASCUSA events such as Supported Entries and Specialties.

Elected officers of an Affiliate are to include at least a President, Vice President, Treasurer, and Secretary. The officers of an Affiliate may not serve concurrently on the Board of MASCUSA or any MASCUSA Affiliate. However, anyone serving on the Board of MASCUSA may serve concurrently as a director on the Board of an Affiliate.
