2022 CSPCA NATIONAL SPECIALTY
The selection process for the 2022 CSPCA National Specialty is now open to any member interested in obtaining a bid from a hotel located in Zone 2 (West Central) which covers the following states:
- New Mexico
- North Dakota
- South Dakota
Below is the Request for Proposal (RFP) and answer sheet grid to be presented to the hotel. The hotel liaison, usually the sales manager must answer all questions.
It is important to remember that this is a time-consuming task, and you will be required to handle research, evaluate hotels, work with the procurement committee to obtain follow up information, clarification, and if needed, a best and final offer from the hotel.
If you do not want to perform all the tasks associated with the bidding process, you can submit the name and address of the hotel you would like considered. We will have Helms Briscoe, a procurement company that has worked on behalf of the CSPCA to include on their list of proprietary hotels.
To be considered, bids must be submitted to all three (3) members of the procurement committee to the following email addresses no later than March 31, 2020:
Due to strict time limits, there will be no exceptions to the due date. The procurement committee will evaluate all appropriate bids according to the RFP, and each answer will be scored using a 0 to 2 numbering system, with 2 being the highest score.
Do not hesitate to contact any of the committee members by email if you have any questions.
2021 NATIONALS LOGO
Members…………we are looking for those with artistic ability to submit a logo for our 2021 Nationals to be located in Lisle, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago. The person whose logo is selected will be awarded $100.00. The deadline for your submission is April 1, 2020.
The logo will be embroidered on clothes, will be printed on materials to advertise the Nationals as well as the premium list and catalog. It may also be used on various other items such as mugs, stickers or patches.
With that in mind here are a few things to consider when designing the logo:
- Your logo should contain a symbol(s) that relates to the city of Lisle, state of Illinois and Chinese Shar-Pei.
- Try to avoid too much detail – simple logos, strong lines, and letters show up better and reduce and enlarge much better than complicated ones.
- Logos should be scalable. Your logo should look good on a business card or a billboard.
- Your logo should be artistically balanced – no one part should overpower the rest.
- Your logo needs to be saved in pdf or eps format.
- Your logo should include the following wording: 2021 Nationals, CSPCA, Lisle, IL or just Illinois……
Please send your art work to Wanda Woodlee, Secretary CSPCA, by the deadline of April 1 to: firstname.lastname@example.org. The logo will be reviewed by the CSPCA Board of Directors at the April meeting.

CLEFT LIP OR PALATE RESEARCH PROJECT
I am writing to request your assistance for a research study to investigate the incidence of orofacial clefts (cleft lip, cleft palate, or both) at birth in various breeds of dogs. This study is being performed by professor Santiago Peralta, DVM, DAVDC, and other colleagues in the Department of Clinical Sciences at Cornell University’s College of Veterinary Medicine.
We would like to anonymously survey breeders to determine how many live births of dogs with cleft lip or palate occurred in their breeding programs over a 12-month period. We are asking breed parent clubs and associated foundations for help distributing the survey and encouraging breeders to participate.
Here is a link to the survey:
Please let me know if you are interested in participating or if you have any questions. Dr. Peralta can be contacted via email at email@example.com. Any suggestions on how you think this would be feasible for the organization you represent would be most welcome.
Thank you very much for your attention. My collaborators and I all look forward to working with you.
