CCAA Notice

CCAA Members,

At 7:50 am this morning, December 13, 2013, the following was sent to the former President, Vice President and Treasurer from the CCAA attorney:

Ladies and Gentleman:

On Tuesday, December 10, the Directors of the Cane Corso Association of America, Inc. convened an emergency meeting to consider the correspondence recently received from the Treasurer, in which she asserted unilateral control over the Corporation’s monies.  She further threatened to tie up the Corporation’s assets until certain demands were agreed to.

In light of the Treasurer’s misappropriation of the Corporation’s funds and the acquiescence of the President and Vice President in her actions and threats, the Directors unanimously determined that it was in the best interest of the Corporation to remove the three individuals from their respective offices pursuant to the Corporation’s Bylaws and Florida law.

The Directors further unanimously determined that it was in the best interests of the Corporation to withdraw its monies from the existing bank account and to open new corporate accounts.  The transfer of funds was accomplished on Thursday, December 12.

Accordingly, you are no longer an officer of the Cane Corso Association of America, Inc.  Please immediately return any Association property to Archie “Steel” Campbell, Secretary, including without limitation, books, records, accounts, archives, bank statements credit or debit cards, corporate seals, and any other property.  If the items are not received byWednesday, December, 18, a report will be made to the American Kennel Club and legal action may be commenced.

Very truly yours,

D. Jay Hyman

Attorney

CCAA Members,

The time has come to clear up some more misinformation. Specifically in regards to the lifetime membership of Mr. Ed Hodas. Mr. Hodas’ lifetime membership is not, nor was it ever, in danger of being rescinded at the request of the Board of Directors. Mr. Hodas received a renewal card in the mail from the Treasurer, as did most members. Apparently, there has been some confusion regarding his receipt of the card and the status of his membership. The Board of Directors has no intention of changing Mr. Hodas’ membership status. We believe that this was simply an oversight on the part of the Treasurer. NO Director has requested that Mr. Hodas pay membership dues, nor do we intend to.

Sincerely,

Steel Campbell, CCAA Secretary
