NCA Marketing and Sales Manger

The NCA is looking for a volunteer to fill the newly created position of NCA Marketing and Sales Manager.  This is an especially important job as it will help the NCA drive non-member revenues, therefore easing the financial burden on the membership.   The revenue will be derived from advertising in NewfTide, social media publications, and sponsorships at the NCA National.  The position will work hand in hand with the NCA National Sponsor Manager and report directly to the NCA’s Board of Directors in coordination with the 2nd Vice President.

The ideal candidate will possess business experience, strong interpersonal skills, and the enthusiasm to make a true difference to the club, as well as the future of the breed.  If you would enjoy a challenging opportunity to develop this position from the ground up, we want to hear from you!  For more information contact Bill Matlock at wwnewf@gmail.com

What a wonderful test this weekend. Weather was Newf like. Temps in the 60-70 range. Thank god the water was warm although. My teeth were chattering! We had four qualifiers on Saturday’s and a requalifier on Sunday. Believe it or not, we were out of the water by 11 am!!!! Judges Benita Edds and Kiko Chang did a fantastic job and Terry Linehan filled In at the last minute as Secretary to save the day. Chief Steward Tisha Bell had a super fantastic line up of stewards (myself included 🤣). It was so wonderful to be with the dogs and people who love dogs! I will post some photos of the award winners in another post. But wanted to give a big shout out to all of the volunteers and entrants. This was a most wonderful weekend!!!! ... See MoreSee Less

NCNE Response to COVID-19

Hi Everyone. So much of our world is different because of this global pandemic associated with the Coronavirus (COVID-19). All this social distancing and closed and restricted services, lack of travel, and cancelling of events has all of us taking a pause to think about the things that are really important. I am super happy it is still safe to hug my dogs. I am sure I only get through some days because I have them in my life.

I want to update you on some changes for our club in response to the COVID-19 restrictions that are in place throughout New England. The NCNE Board of Directors met by conference call on. Sunday, March 29th and discussed all of the events we have scheduled for the remainder of the year. We also talked about the impact of this on our elections and on the club’s finances. I want to take a minute to update you.


  • We are cancelling the Spring Fling, scheduled for May 31st.
  • We are postponing the Annual Meeting, the Awards Presentation and the Election of Officers and swearing in of the new officers until Saturday, September 12th. We are holding a Regional Specialty Show on the Cape that weekend and we will move these events to coincide with that show, similar to the big celebration we had last year in June for our 50th Anniversary. The Board plans to make this a fun time with some extra attractions…something for everyone. More to come about those plans.
  • We currently have a full calendar of Water Fun Days scheduled beginning in June. We are not making any changes to those events until we see what is going on with the COVID-19 response. We will send out communications either way.
  • Most know that NCA cancelled the National Specialty. There will be a re-opening of the store for the logo items. We will post info on that in case you want to pick up something. NCA did lose money by not being able to hold the event, so if you can support the logo sale, that would be great.


  • The club does rely on our events to bring in money to support our membership. We will have less revenue, but at this time, we feel we are able to continue without hardship.
  • We do have some money invested and like everyone, these accounts have taken a hard hit, but we had built a reserve and will be able to continue to fund our rescue and educational efforts.


  • Ordinarily, the Slate would be presented to the membership at the Annual Meeting and a single vote cast by the Secretary for approval. If there were additional people interested in being considered for a position once the slate was submitted by the Nominating committee, those individuals would petition the club and an election would be held. The By-laws speak to the schedule for these events. Since we are moving the Annual meeting until September, we are also adjusting the dates. The schedule will be announced in another communication.
  • All current officers and Board members will continue in their positions until the September meeting.

We are in this together. We will get through this together. Check in on each other. Keep your friends posted as to how you are doing. Don’t be afraid to let people know if you need help. Wash your hands. Practice social distancing. Stay Safe-Stay Home. I want you to be there with me on the other side to celebrate!

My sincerest wishes for your health – you, your family and your Newfs!


Axel's Journey

Follow along with Axel the Newfoundland Puppy's story.

Axel is a 15 week old puppy who is all puppy breath, puppy kisses, spunk and playfulness, just as a puppy should be! Unfortunately, Axel was born with a pretty significant deformity in his left front leg and will need that leg removed.
