Re: [Killietalk] improving the AKA
I agree with Wright that the AKA should direct more effort towards creating
and supporting local affiliate clubs. There is much more that can be done.
Unfortunately, even those of us who participate in this talk line disagree
about what to do. The BOT is no different.
Perhaps the first step should be to redefine what constitutes an affiliate
club. Is a 50% AKA membership necessary? For a club starting from scratch,
or even one that is growing fairly rapidly, that can be a difficult hurdle
to reach. For a group of "old-timers", it is no problem.
Should a club strive to produce a show? Frankly, I think they can be
"club-killers" and have seen several general clubs disintegrate because of
the effort required to run a show. Why not limit the AKA-sanctioned shows
(for AKA brownie point purposes) to one per region (and we may want to draw
new regional boundaries!)?
The above is food for thought...

...I do wish the AKA would stop competing with the affiliates for
individual members and support forming far more local clubs and
improving regional meetings and regional shows.
