Update – January 7, 2023

Our next member meeting is scheduled for Sunday, April 15, 2023. More details with the Zoom link will be sent to members.

Annual dues notices will be sent out starting on January 15, 2023.  Included in the dues notice will be trophy sponsorship renewals.  We are asking members who use PayPal to ensure you add a note to your dues and trophy sponsorship for us to ensure the cost is applied to the trophy cost.  If you do not indicate this in the comment section we cannot account for your sponsorship.

One change we are implementing this year is that dues payments be sent to the secretary.  This complies with the accounting principle of separation of duties which is a key concept in placing internal controls over the Club’s assets.  In other words, no one person has control over the transactions.  This information will be explained in the notice.

Dues are expected by March 31, 2023.  At that time, we will review payments and send out reminders to anyone who has not yet paid.  Once all members have been confirmed we’ll send out the membership list to review and ensure all information is accurate.

We have confirmed sponsorship for the St. Hubert’s Kennel Club in Brooklyn, CT on May 13, 2023. IWANE Sponsorship has fallen to the wayside since Covid and we’d like to continue our sponsorships.  We need members to actively work with the kennel clubs to get our name on the premium list and get the trophy information out to the clubs.  This is a team effort so please let the board know of your intentions of working with those clubs.

We will be continuing our Meet & Greet walks this year.  If anyone has a suggestion for a location or would like to host a meeting of the hounds, please let me know and I’m happy to help facilitate and get the message out.  The two we had in 2022 in Maine and Vermont, respectively, were a big hit with those looking to meet an Irish Wolfhound “in person”.  We continue to get people looking to meet and learn more about our hounds. 

Calendar sales for 2023 are complete! We very much appreciate your support in this endeavor year over year.

Our IWANE coffee mugs will be offered in limited supply at the Annual Specialty. These mugs are the perfect size for a hot cup of joe, tea or anything, really! Get them while they last!!

Mugs are 11 ounces.
