The American Kennel Club is pleased to announce that the permanent record from the first AKC Parent Club Conference has been placed on CD-ROM for distribution to parent clubs and delegates. The CD contents include a transcript record of all the sessions held at the conference, as well as the PowerPoint presentations and video clips that were part of each presentation.

The Parent Club Conference was held in Cincinnati, Ohio, on October 25th-27th, with approximately 300 attendees including 8 AKC Board members and 72 Parent Club Presidents. In total, 137 Parent Clubs were represented.

The CD was sent to the Corresponding Secretary of every AKC Parent Club in addition to all conference attendees. Additional copies will be distributed to all AKC Delegates.

Clubs may freely copy and distribute the contents of the CD as desired, allowing for a continuation of the information exchange that made the first event such a success.

"We are pleased to be able to provide a permanent record of the inaugural Parent Club Conference for the fancy," said Nick D'Altilio, Chief Operating Officer. "We know it will allow for much of the information that was covered at the conference to be shared beyond the attendees and will be a great resource for Parent Clubs' Boards of Directors, Committee members and National Specialty Show Chairs."
