benefit of ADSJ Membership comes automatically with membership in the largest
judges organization in the world --- effective representation! Your views
and concerns, together with those of so many others, combine through the
vehicle of the ADSJ to create a voice which must be heard. We, the officers
and directors of the ADSJ, gather, amplify and articulate this voice. It
is heard by the governing body of our sport in a variety of ways, namely,
informal conversations, letters to the AKC board and management, position
papers and articles in The Voice, and most notably, through our
AKC/ADSJ liaison meetings with key AKC Board and management personnel.
Through these avenues we endeavor to build a relationship with the AKC
based on reason, open communication and mutual respect.
