Currently arranging for Regulations Part 6 – The Register & Registration, Clause 9.6 (b)  to be amended to reflect this decision and ANKC website will be updated in due course.

 


Notices of Motions                                Closing date 11 January 2019

Motion (1) from BTCV
 
That the ROM rules 4.g, 4.g.1 and 4.g.2 be amended to
 
4.         Judges
 
g.          Criteria for Australian Specialist Judges to be placed on the ROM list are as follows:
 
            1.         ANKC Championship Show approved judges who are current breeders of Bull Terriers and or Bull Terrier Miniatures with a demonstrable involvement in the breed/s over a period of not less than ten years.
 
2.         ANKC Championship Show approved judges who, although not current breeders, have bred or owned Bull Terrier and or Bull Terrier Miniatures for not less than ten years and retain close association with the breed/s and have demonstrated an abiding interest and close recent involvement with the breed/s.
 
Rationale: To remove the ambiguity of the current wording which reads ANKC approved  judges  and fails to distinguish between Championship and trainee judges.
 
 
Motion (2) from BTCV


"That as per NBTC(A) Constitution rule 4.8, all the authority emanates from the member clubs in relation to any matter before the NBTC(A)” 

 

Rationale: Parts of the ROM rules are ambiguous and until they’re revised the NBTC(A) Executive should not be undertaking the decision making.

Example - ROM Rule 3.a. Clubs requiring ROM status for more than one Open Show per year must apply to the NBTCA Secretary in writing before advertising the show as a ROM Show.

Clubs are to apply to the NBTC(A) Secretary but does not state what is the approval process.

Given that there is only two NBTC(A) executives, what happens when they don’t agree?

 

Motion (3) from BTCV

 

 

“That ROM Rule 2 be amended to read
