The Australian Cattle Dog Society of Great Britain is managed by a Committee according to Kennel Club guidelines. For details about becoming a member of the Society, please see here.

Committee Members must be nominated and elected by the Society membership at the AGM (held in March each year). All members will be sent a Notice of the AGM with the Winter Newsletter.

The Committee meet 3-4 times a year. If you would like to suggest a discussion topic for the agenda, please email our Society secretary: and it will be brought to the next meeting agenda.

Please do not put Committee Members in an awkward position by asking them for details of what was discussed during meetings. All Committee Members are bound to confidentiality as laid out in the Kennel Club guidelines:

“The Kennel Club recommends that minutes of committee meetings should not be made available to members. However, the Society officers may agree to report to members on certain issues.”

As such, the Committee will endeavour to provide members with a brief summary of the topics that were discussed at each meeting via the Newsletter.
