One third of committee posts usually come up for re-election at each AGM. But there have been a number of changes to the committee since the last AGM, and the normal pattern of elections has changed.
I was asked to stand as chair 2 years ago, as there were no nominations for the post, and was persuaded to continue last year, for the same reason. I have also been temporarily covering the Treasurer’s rôle and am willing to continue – but there must be somebody better qualified than me out there to take the chair!
I’m very grateful to Val Grainger and Sally Hoppins, who both stepped up to the plate in 2019 to help with the Breed Development Working Group. Val cannot continue for personal reasons, and will be missed.
Of the current committee, David has one year to run as Registrar, and Carolyn 2 years, as Secretary. The other posts all come up for election at the AGM (for varying term lengths to try to maintain some continuity). The committee also has coopted members from across the country, and is supported by other posts, who no longer sit on the committee.
