Breed Education Co-ordinator
We have received a communication from the Kennel Club informing us that all breeds are required to appoint a Breed Education Co-ordinator (BEC) by the 1st June 2018. At the last Working Party Meeting we were unable to discuss this subject as no information had been released by the Kennel Club.
In view of the short period of time we have to respond to this directive the plan is for anyone who is interested in taking up this role to let the Working Party Secretary, Frances Goldfinch know by the 17th March 2018. If several people express an interest then the 6 Breed Clubs’ Committees will be asked to vote accordingly.
We are also aware that several breeds have appointed a Breed Education Co-ordinator who has the responsibility for overseeing the scheme and liaising with the Kennel Club, but have also formed a small group to undertake various aspects of the role.
It is essential that we appoint somebody within our breed, failure to do so could result in us being allocated someone who has no knowledge of the Cairn Terrier.
A full role description can be found under ‘Breed Education Co-ordinator Role Description’ at www.thekennelclub.org.uk/JCF
The Kennel Club will be inviting all appointed Breed Education Co-ordinators to an event on Sunday 15th July 2018 at the Kennel Club Building at Stoneleigh Park, Warwickshire, where they intend to equip them with the necessary tools to undertake the role and answer any questions. Further details will be provided by the KC closer to the event.
