Chapter Mentor Program

With the need for continued support, education and communication between NAVHDA members and chapters, NAVHDA International is pleased to launch our new Chapter Mentor Program.

We have developed a list of highly experienced NAVHDA members throughout the US and Canada who are willing and able to act as resources for any NAVHDA member or NAVHDA chapter. These mentors can provide input on chapter and training day organization, organizing and preparing for NAVHDA tests, best practices for chapter development and success, where and when to buy and keep training birds, creative ways to find new training property, etc. While we anticipate that these mentors would be most helpful to new or recently established chapters, it’s always a good idea for even long-established chapters to get a feel for how things are done elsewhere.

The list of Mentors and their contact information appears below. As you’ll see, this list includes highly experienced local chapter leaders, NAVHDA judges, and staff. We encourage you reach out to them any time. As NAVHDA continues to grow, this list of individuals will likely expand to meet the future needs of our members.

For more information about the program, contact our Director of Promotions – Andy Doak, or reach out to NAVHDA’s office staff and they will be happy help you.
