JoAnne Campbell EOC

As nominations are received, the EOC will send out an email confirming that your nomination has been received, so keep an eye out for that confirmation email!
As important deadlines come up, the EOC will post reminders to make this an easy process. Questions and/or clarification can ALWAYS be sent to the EOC via email at CCAA2013EOC@aol.com. Thank you for being a part of this important process for the CCAA!
CCAA Working Committee would like to sincerely thank all the Cane Corsos that participated in the 2nd annual CCAA Working Regional generously hosted by Chicago Dog Sport Festival.
Your efforts to showcase the versatility and trainability of the Cane Corso are very much appreciated, as is your dedication and countless hours spent working with your dogs.
CONGRATULATIONS to Mitch Keating and his dog Byonic’s Viggo for obtaining their IPO 1A! They were also awarded the High Protection Score Cane Corso, and are the 1st ever CCAA Working Regional Champion! It should also be noted that Mitch is the breeder, owner, handler and trainer of Viggo!
CONGRATULATIONS also to Angie Stark and Renegade’s Dozer for earning their IPO OB 3 (having obtained their IPO 3A earlier in the year) as well as the High Obedience Score Cane Corso trophy. A special thanks goes to Angie as well for hosting such a great event and making CCAA’s participation possible!

Regretfully, the CCAA is announcing that Tony Scandy, President of the CCAA, has been suspended from his duties until December 5, 2013 for ethics violations. In the interim, Janet Gigante CCAA Vice President, will assume his duties.
Nominations for the specialty judges for 2015 will begin again with some new parameters in place. Due to concerns that have been expressed regarding the differences in judging and standards, the BOD has voted to change the judge nomination process as follows:
The National Specialty judge must be an AKC judge. Judges approved to judge the Cane Corso in FCI or AKC may be nominated for the other specialty events. This will change the initial nominations to 2 categories (national specialty and other specialties) with 3 nominations per member for each category. Nominations will be processed according to the following timeline. Please submit to: firstname.lastname@example.org
August 1 – September 15, open nominations (3 nominations per voting member)
September 16 – October 15, vetting nominees
October 16 – November 15, final voting on vetted nominees (one vote per voting member)
This has been about a year in the making:
