The Board may each year appoint standing committees to advance the work of the Club in such matters as breeding, health, conformation shows, companion and performance events, trophies, annual prizes, membership, national events, awards for service to the club and/or breed, and other fields which may well be served by committees. Special committees may also be appointed by the Board to aid it on particular projects. However, unless specifically renewed by vote of the board, all committee terms shall expire at the conclusion of the annual meeting, and the Board shall appoint committee members for the coming year according to such criteria as it may choose. All committees shall always be subject to the final authority of the Board.
