2022 GSPCA election

GSPCA ElectionRecording Secretary: Melissa Campbell [email melissa]

For new members who may not know me, let me introduce myself. My name is Melissa Campbell and I am running for the position of Recording Secretary. I am just finishing up my first term as the current Recording Secretary.  

I started my love of this breed in the place I was needed most, GSP Rescue. My involvement with rescue has been such a rewarding experience. To take a dog from a shelter, provide love and secure home and then to watch that abused and mistreated dog blossom and find its new forever home is amazing. 
I continue to support rescue when time allows and run the rescue table at the GSPCA NSS. Rescue led me to get involved with conformation and my first show dog. Over the years I have expanded into different venues and have placed and or titled GSP’s in conformation, hunt testing, and field trials. I have recently signed up for some rally and scent work classes and hope to compete in some NAVHDA events this spring. 

In my personal life, I am married to a wonderful man who supports my passion for GSP’s. We have raised 6 kids together and now enjoy our 6 grandchildren whenever possible. We are also Breeders of Merit and have produced some lovely shorthairs under the Lakota Hills kennel name who are competing and are successful in multiple venues (show, field, and performance).

My first 2 years as your Recording Secretary have been very rewarding and a huge learning experience. My responsibilities have allowed me to gain a greater understanding of all the hard work the board and various committees do to help run the GSPCA. 

I have had the opportunity to learn so many things and hope to attend some field events this year to learn even more. I currently sit on the National Specialty committee and the NAGDC committee and have been involved in planning to help make our events not only a fun event but one that more and more people want to attend. 

If given the opportunity to serve another term I promise to continue to represent the entire membership. I believe the club belongs to all members and all members should have a say in the future of our breed. I am open to questions and can be reached via email at lakotahillsgsp@gmail.com or recording-secretary@gspca.org.   

 Thank you for your support and I look forward to the opportunity to continue to serve the GSPCA membership.
