Attention All Victorian Exhibitors - THANK YOU

Thursday, 13 January 2022

As chair of the conformation judges training committee and on behalf of the committee members, I would personally like to extend a sincere thanks to all who have contributed to the success of our training scheme here in Victoria through the difficult times of Covid.

I would like to acknowledge the wonderful exhibitors who are always willing to offer their time and assistance in so many different ways especially, supplying dogs for their practical exams and other learning opportunities. You are the reason that new judges keep coming through and you keep our sport alive. I must let you know that you are dearly appreciated from all of us here in the dog world.

An example of this was over the weekend of 27, 28 and 29 December 2021. With early starts, we ran a number of assessments with numerous candidates, some successful in gaining their respective licence. Again, a huge thank you for making this possible especially over the Christmas and new year period. 

At this time, the CJC is planning a ‘final plunge’ in an attempt to get through every other 2021 practical application. We are hoping to pull this together very soon.

In due course, all group leaders will be approaching you once again to make dogs available so we can assemble breed and mini group classes. We acknowledge the huge effort that this involves for everyone. If you are able to be involved or are interested in helping us, please contact myself at conformationjudgestraining@gmail.com. The conformation judges committee and trainees will be forever grateful.

Chair of the Conformation Judges Committee

Hot off the Press

From the Chief Executive

Dear members,
 
Welcome to 2022! We hope you have enjoyed the festive season.
 
We have returned after the holiday period to find our message bank, email inbox and letter box is bulging with applications and inquiries as a result of a number of late 2021 initiatives or actions such as;
• Delays with Australia Post delivering renewals
• Staff and responsibility changes
• Staff absence (Covid/Non Covid related)
• Fantastic response to our membership renewal and database maintenance/update initiatives
• Return to events that has increased title applications
• The holiday period that has provided time for members to catch up on paperwork submissions
 
Because of this, we expect processing times to exceed our three day turnaround target probably until late January 2022. We appreciate your understanding during this period whilst we get on top of the influx of processing we’ve received.
 
Whilst we work hard to quickly get on top of the bulging workload, we would appreciate members holding off on following up on recent applications or inquiries submitted so that we are able to focus on processing the initial application or inquiry.
 
We will advise once we have returned to standard processing times (three day turnaround) so members are able to follow up if there is missing, delayed or outstanding processing matters.
 
We thank you again for your patience during this time,
 

Jason Eggleton
