2012 Breed Council Ballot ~ Proposals and Results
- Persian - General:
Ballot for the election of Persian Breed Council Secretary, for the term of January 1, 2013 through December 31, 2014:
Linda Acomb - Fallbrook, CA ** ELECTED **
Geri Fellerman - Clark, NJ
Hope Gonano - Wexford, PA
Persian - Tabby Division:
- Total Members: 28 ~ Ballots Received: 18 ~ 60% for passing: 11
PROPOSED: Change the point allocation in the paragraph immediately preceding the GENERAL description, as follows:
For cats in the tabby division, the 20 points for color are to be divided 10 for markings and 10 for color.
For cats in the tabby division, the 20 points for color are to be divided 15 for markings and 5 for color.
RATIONALE: Increasing the points for markings will bring attention to the importance of tabby markings for our tabby Persians. More and more often, the importance of the tabby pattern is being minimized during judging. By decreasing the number of points awarded for color and increasing the number of points for tabby markings we are sending a message to our judges regarding the importance we want them to place on these markings. This is not intended to place more emphasis on markings than head or body type, but to remind our judges that tabby markings are a vital aspect of the tabby Persian.
Did not pass by 60% - not considered by the Board
