Glen of Imaal Terrier Enthusiasts and Fanciers Club.
Following this year’s Companion show at Swineshead the acting committee met to discuss what needed to be done now we are formally recognised. It was a packed agenda and many things are work in progress but just to make sure everyone is kept informed it was agreed to provide information on what is happening.
The Kennel Club required one or two minor amendments to the rules ,which were accepted. The club year was fixed as Jan 1 to Dec 31st with AGMs held in the Spring to give the secretary time to put the KC returns together for July.
A formal AGM will be held in spring next year to ratify the appointments of committee and officers and give everyone the opportunity to be fully involved.
A judges sub committee is putting together judging lists in accordance with KC rules for the committee to consider. Hopefully that will be completed by the Autumn.
A judging Seminar and a breed show were agreed in principle
Health initiatives were discussed and proposals for Life time Health records and Bio banking (DNA storage) agreed as a positive step forward.
In addition to the above, intellectual property, a newsletter twice a year, questions about the website, the blog and matters dealing with the secretary’s work and the bank accounts were all talked about.
