The SDA held its Annual General Meeting at Pirbright on Sunday 15th March 2015.

Committee members Jenny Rowe, Sharon Broad and Sue Burke retired by rotation, but were willing to stand again and were duly re-elected.  Ian Seath was re-elected as Chairman.

Elaine Morris retired from the Committee and as Show Manager.  Wendy Starkey has agreed to take on the role of Show Manager.

Members were asked to support a proposal that the Daxaid Fund should be transferred to an account within the newly formed Dachshund Rescue charity. This was agreed by the members and £5544.25 will be transferred and ring-fenced by Dachshund Rescue for future Daxaid use.  Individuals may still continue to donate to Daxaid as before, with the added benefit that the new charity can now claim Gift Aid which will add 25 pence for every pound donated.

Members also agreed to make two donations of £100 each from the Association’s reserves.  One donation was made to the Dachshund Breed Council’s Health Fund, to be ring-fenced to support the Lafora Screening programme. the second donation was made to support Dr. Cathryn Mellersh’s team at the Animal Health Trust as a token of our appreciation of the work that she and her colleagues do for our breed.
