Board of Directors

The general management of the United States Eurasier Club's affairs is conducted by a Board of five Directors, all of whom must be members in good standing with the USEC and all of whom are residents of the United States. The Directors named in the USEC's Articles of Organization as the first Board of Directors held office until the first annual meeting of the USEC members on September 30, 2006. At that time, election results were announced. The replacement of the Board of Directors was staggered as provided in the USEC bylaws. All Director positions elected on a going-forward basis be held for terms of three years. In accordance with the USEC bylaws, the President and Vice President of the USEC must be Directors.

To reach all Directors of the USEC, please use our centralized email address

As the club has grown, we have moved away from having an individual breeding coordinator to a board appointed subcommittee. The breeding committee's goal is to research each planned pairing or breeding of dogs: this includes researching pedigrees for known health issues, assessing their conformation, and assisting new breeders as mentors. The board presents their reports to the board, and the board directors vote based on the information they are given.

Breeders should reach out to as they begin to plan their upcoming litter(s).
