PWDCA AKC Delegate
From the AKC web site, the American Kennel Club is a "club of clubs" rather than a club of individuals. There are over 500 clubs that meet AKC membership requirements and have elected or appointed Delegates to represent them at quarterly meetings of the AKC Delegate Body. Each delegate functions as a representative of his/her member club in voting on matters that come before the AKC Delegate Body. In addition, the thirteen individuals who serve on AKC's Board of Directors are selected from the AKC Delegates.
