I am running as a write-in candidate for the Association of Professional Dog Trainers (APDT) Board of Trustees. As a write-in candidate, my information isn't posted on the APDT website, so I'm posting it here. I'm having to run as a write-in because I had previously served on the Nominations Committee. Even though I resigned from that Committee before deciding to run and announcing my candidacy, some members of the current Board felt there was a "conflict" putting my name forward on the "official" ballot.
It's not easy to run a write-in campaign, and I can use all the help and support I can get. If you are, or know any Professional members of the APDT, please encourage them to vote in the election (balloting is open from September 28th to October 5th), and write in Gail Fisher.
Since my information is not on the APDT website, I've included in here so you can read my responses to the questionnaire -- my qualifications for this responsibility, and what I see as the future of the APDT and the dog training profession.
