2018 Chelmsford Dog Association Annual Meeting

Our November meeting is our annual meeting. The meeting will be held at the function room of the Chelmsford Police Department on Thursday, November 29 and will begin at 6:30PM. Votes will be cast immediately following the opening agenda items and any current member of the Chelmsford Dog Association may cast a vote. Elected directors will take office starting January 1 and the new board will vote to appoint the officers at the January meeting. In addition to voting for the open positions, as always the CDA will also be reviewing the status of the organization, plans for the upcoming year and the current bylaws. We will hold discussion on suggestions for amendments and/or modifications to the bylaws if desired.
