President’s Message



For the 2016 Conference we are giving away jackets at registration. If you could email your name, organization and size of jacket to me it would be greatly appreciated.



Hope all is going well for each of you.  I can’t believe that fall is almost here, seems like we did not have a summer this year.  The board has been working hard on putting together the upcoming conference in Feb. 2016.  We are almost finished with the final touches.  I plan on sending out the flyers mid-October so be watching for them.


We have Euthanasia Training coming up on September 18, 2015.   It will be held at the Weber County Animal Shelter.  We recommend that you take this class every 2 years to stay up to date on the laws and techniques for this practice.


We have partnered up with the Humane Society of the United States to have training on the new cockfighting law here in the State of Utah.  I highly recommend that everyone attend this.  Like I stated it is a free training.   The training will be held in Springville at 110 South Main Street in the Springville City Office.  If you have any questions please give me a call, my cell number is 801-404-9931.


We have had some members ask how to run for a position for the board.  It is really simple.  You must send in a picture of yourself stating you are running for the position that is desired by you with no more than a 100 words. You must have the backing of your department, this is a must.   This must be sent to the President or Vice President 60 Days before the annual Utah Animal Control Officers Association Conference.  The positions that are up for election are Vice President, Secretary, and 3 board positions.
