    And yet another change (they must have read Karlin's post) at CKCS Club UK

    SPECIAL GENERAL MEETING, 5TH OCTOBER 2008 **

    SECOND NOTICE TO OVERSEAS MEMBERS


    The recent website notice to overseas members was issued following advice received from the Kennel Club. This stated that overseas members could be allowed to vote at the forthcoming SGM.

    However, the Club subsequently received queries concerning the absence of formal SGM Notices issued to overseas members. AGM Notices have never previously been sent to overseas members. The Club therefore sought further advice from the Kennel Club Legal Department to clarify the voting entitlements of overseas members. The following revised KC guidance has just been received:

    ‘.... the forthcoming SGM is specifically about the removal of a person from the club committee. As a general proposition, the removal of a person from office should only be effected by the body which initially confers this office. The benefits of membership listed in the club rule book limits participation in the annual elections to UK members. The committee is therefore constituted by the ordinary UK members. Therefore it would not be correct to allow overseas members to participate in this vote.‘

    ‘For the forthcoming SGM, it is suggested that out of courtesy the overseas members are advised of the meeting and of any changes in the committee as the club would ordinarily do so, in the normal course of business.’

    We must therefore withdraw previous advice to overseas members on their entitlement to vote.

    re NCKSC Ch show Aug o7
    and SHE had the b----dy cheek to criticise 'lack of muscle tone' amongst the exhibits. Makes me wonder why anyone would have valued her opinion of their dogs. But hey never mind, shes got the best interest of the breed at heart really she has.....Yep, and I'm a monkeys uncle!!

    Having just returned from holiday I was disgusted to receive letter from The Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Club calling a SGM on Sunday 5th October to consider the removal of Margarte Carter from the committee of the above club.
    I tried to read all the previous posts but wonder if someone can help me. As a member of said club can they insist that in order to vote you have to attend? It is almost impossible for me and my husband to attend this meeting but as a fully paid up member I would have thought you do not actually have to attend. We have never been asked to go when voting for a member to join committee so why this?

    There is no postal vote for this one I think. Put "postal vote" search.

    No, there is no postal vote.

    However there are questions over whether an SGM can be held.

    The Kennel Club's legal department certainly seems to be very confused these days!

    Most travel insurance won't refund tickets for a reason like this, either!

    The club must be a laughing stock worldwide by now....I wonder what the next change will be.....watch that space.

    Holly Dolly, sadly we have to attend to vote hardly fair to members that cannot travel for many reasons....they havn't thought that out very well.

    and hardly fair on people that have bought tickets....

    but then the whole process of trying to remove Margaret is hardly right either.

    I'm annoyed that you only have the right to vote in person, when the yearly voting for Committee members can be done by post.

    As I have said before, under normal circumstances I wouldn't hesitate to drive up there, but after my knee op I am not even allowed to put my right foot on the floor for a further 4 weeks and driving is right out of the question.

    I am hoping that the legal issues will mean the meeting never takes place. Anyone who gets news about this please update asap. Fingers crossed.

    PS Welcome back to the board HollyDolly - hope you had a good holiday.

    Just had a letter from the Kennel Club about my correspondence re: Pedigree Dogs Exposed:

    Dear Mrs Bell

    Thank you for your correspondence regarding Cavalier King Charles Spaniels, the contents of which have been noted.

    Please find enclosed a press release which was issued by the Kennel Club last week to outline our position with regards to the breed and the health issues involved.

    Yours sincerely
    Caroline Kisko
    I suppose I should not be suprised at such a limited reply, but actually my letter covered a lot more than just Cavalier health - Margaret Clarke, the Kennel Club's defensive reaction to the show, their Accredited Breeders Scheme and lack of enforcement of breeding protocols, remark by Mr Irving about not being told what to do by scentists etc, etc.

    So, acknowledgement from CKCS Club, this from Kennel Club, an e-mail (totally satifactory answer re: support message on KC website) from Dogs Trust.

    No replies from Pedigree Dog Foods or James Wellbeloved yet, who I wrote to 10 days ago. Defra, CKCS Club re: Margaret Clark, Roger Helmer and Peter Ainsworth, MP still a bit early to expect a reply.

    Will keep you posted.
