New Officers following SDA AGM

Leave a comment

At our 2021 Annual General Meeting we were pleased to appoint Rosy Clifford to the role of President of the Association. Rosy previously served as a Vice President and was, for many years, Secretary.

Assistant Secretary Gina Salisbury stepped down from that role and the committee, and was thanked for her long service under 3 Secretaries. Her admin skills and attention to detail ideally suited her to the role and her contribution will be missed. She was presented with a retirement gift on behalf of the members.

The Assistant Secretary role is being picked up by Hayley Chapman-Reith and we thank her for volunteering and wish her every success working alongside the other Officers.

Brian Ballan also retired from the committee and his role as Vice Chairman. Brian was also a highly efficient Chief Steward at our shows as well as being known as a steward on the general championship show circuit.

Finally, a big thank you to all our members who attended the AGM.

Sue Seath and Becki Rowe were the instructors and Chrissy Gibson helped out as the guest judge for the day. This event was for anyone who hasn’t shown before or who has less than a year’s experience and who wanted to find out what’s involved in showing a Dachshund.

Chrissy, Sue and Becki talked about how to show your dog in a typical show class and what the judge will expect your dog to do. Participants received a handout covering…
– How to fill in an entry form.
– What equipment you will need for your dog at the show.
– What to do when you arrive at a show.
– A description of judging procedures.
– What to do if you win a class.
– What to do after your class.

Everyone also received a Certificate and a small gift as a “thank you” for taking part.

Committee member and Show Manager Wendy Starkey was elected as the new Secretary. Gina Salisbury continues as Assistant Secretary. We wish Wendy every success in her new role.
