Region23

****Important Note to all AISRegion 23 Members ****

AISRegion23 RVP Kathy Palmer will be stepping down as RVP.  Assistant RVP Cynthia Riveria will not be able to take over.  Scarlett Ayres of the Mesilla Valley Iris Society has been nominated to become RVP.   If you would like to nominate someone else, please send their names and 5 signatures (emails) supporting their nomination to Howie Dash howiedash [at] aol [dot] com by Feb 10, 2017.   If no other nominations are received, Ms. Ayres will by become RVP by acclamation.

We appreciate all the work Kathy Palmer has done as RVP.

****Upcoming Lecture and Judges Training****

Dell Perry has agreed to give a judges training (Judging Arilbreds in an AIS Show). Judges training is a class with an exam. Judges and aspiring judges are required to attend several of these training sessions each. BUT even if you do not plan to be a judge, but think that you might want to grow and enter Arilbred's at a Show some time, these training sessions give you an opportunity to learn what judges are thinking about when they examine your iris entries. (You can skip the exam if you do not want to judge ;-)

 

Talk 2-3

Refreshments 3-3:30
Judges training 3:30 - 6:00


Arilbred public lecture Feb 19, 2017
