In 1991 in her farewell Shiloh Shepherd™ Newsletter, Tina noted:

 They say no man is an island, well, no woman is either!!! I have carried the entire load for the welfare and advancement of this breed on my shoulders for a long, long time! Yes, there have been "satellites" and others  that have helped along the way but the burden was always all mine! Now I can see that burden lifting--because there's so many other people out there that wanted to team up and carry these dogs through to the end of the race--and far, far beyond!!

 If she only knew what was in store for her and the breed…

Just for the record, prior to casting your vote during this election, you may want to take a second look at former board members and officers of the SSDCA.

Note: Gary Allison was appointed Vice President by Tina. The election for the Board of Directors was held at Homecoming in August.  The campaign statements from each candidate were printed in the March '96 newsletter. All the newly elected Board members other than Lisa Barber resigned by the end of the year due to insurance liability concerns. Dana Russe is no longer involved with Shiloh Shepherds™.  Julie Jajowka (aka JRiker) is outspokenly against the breed.  Gale Richardson and Jerry Pack  are breeding outside of the ISSR. Gary Allison formed the ISSDC and the ISSDCr.  Wendy Fullerton became secretary of the ISSDC and helped form the ISSDCr, returned during the Amnesty and left again in 2004, helping to lead the failed effort to have Shiloh Shepherds recognized by the UKC.

For the events leading to the formation of the ISSDC and the temporary hibernation of the SSDCA, please visit History of the Club Split.

In January 1998, the SSDCA was revived.  The following board members were appointed by Tina Barber to serve as directors until the next scheduled election, August 1999. The board members passed an amendment to the Constitution, which was ratified by membership vote in August, 1999, that the elected members of the board of Directors  would from now on be referred to as the ADVISORY BOARD, and would hold no liability for any club affairs. Their responsibility was limited to the representation of the desires of the general membership.

Where are some of these people today? What are they doing now? Why? Think about it—investigate—what were their goals? Why? What good have they done for our breed? What lofty goals have they achieved? How have they benefited the well over 1000 members who are no longer with the SSDCA? Why did so many good people leave our club in less than a decade?

Think long and hard! Let’s not allow history to repeat itself!
