The mission of the Judges’ Education Committee is to provide education to current and prospective Akita judges who intend to apply to the AKC for approval to judge the breed. The JEC also provides continuing education to licensed Akita judges as appropriate.
JEC Vision & Goal:
The JEC seeks to educate prospective and current Akita judges by developing educational materials based on the AKC Akita Standard, delivering seminars, serving as breed and ringside mentors, providing judging techniques, and disseminating information. To achieve this goal, the JEC reviews, revises and updates educational materials on a regular basis, develops new materials, and seeks on-going feedback/assessment from JEC participants/attendees and others that is used to improve the quality and delivery of seminars and materials.
