The USDAA staff has gained a Director of Public Relations and Communications.
USDAA is pleased to announce that Annie DeChance will be joining the our team as Director of Public Relations and Communications. Communications is a major challenge of any organization. With continuing growth, it is important that we place more emphasis on our relationships and clarity in communications. Annie brings a wealth of experience in communications, public relations, and social media, and will be principally tasked with overseeing and coordinating those efforts for USDAA.

Annie has been a long-time employee with the cities of Scottsdale and Phoenix in media and public relations. She is an avid dog agility enthusiast and active competitor. She has provided public relations and media support for the Cynosport® World Games since the event moved to Scottsdale in 2004, and continued this effort as the event moved to Kentucky, Colorado, and Tennessee. Over the past year, she has produced the Judge's Call series of videos posted to USDAAs YouTube channel.
Annie is happy about her career change. She says, "I'm truly excited to be on board with USDAA. I'm looking forward to getting out there, meeting new agility people, working with clubs and competitors, and promoting the great sport of USDAA agility."
Join us in welcoming Annie to the USDAA team! Feel free to reach out to her at email@example.com anytime about how we can better serve each of you.
