"Starting Jan 2011 - Must have one level 3 title in one course/stock AND must have at least a level 2 title in a DIFFERENT course."
I sent an email to the group, which, of course, was moderated. It read:
This is a great idea. I saw a similar message earlier in the year mentioning this. I have a couple of questions, though.
Was this decision made by the members of the AHBA at the annual meeting?
Do I need to become a member to be notified of upcoming voting issues?
For issues dealing with changes in the judge requirements, are the judges sent a notice, or do they need to rely on messages posted on this message board?
Wouldn't it be just awful if anyone ever questioned what the AHBA is actually doing? I didn't get moderated for being rude, or attacking anyone personally or anything like that. I got moderated for questioning what membership entailed. Period. And here's a prime example. Decisions were made. By who? Not the members, I'm sure. Was this ever really up for formal discussion? Was there a meeting? I am a judge. I got no notification. And it's not even on the website.
I attempted to post my message a second time. And again, it was moderated. Imagine that.
