Important Announcement Regarding the Planned Special General
Meeting of the GSD League of Great Britain
The GSD League Council have taken time to consider the decision of the Kennel Club Appeal Tribunal received last week. We are firmly of the opinion that it is in the best interests of our members that we retain our KC registered status. We remain commiteed to ensuring our current suspension is lifted.
We are encouraged by the feedback from the Appeal Tribunal and strongly believe that there is a realistic opportunity for reaching a solution. In order to achieve this, the GSD League Council believe that it is of paramount importance that our efforts are focused on that objective. It has therefore been unanimously decided to cancel the Special General Meeting planned for the 22nd of May 2016 and the agenda items will be held over to a more appropriate time.
The GSD League Council were particulararly encouraged by the final paragraphs of the Appeal Tribunals decision and this significantly influenced our decision:
"The suspension is for twelve months 0 this allows for the League to try and find a way to resolve matters. It is within the gift of the League to decide whether or not it wishes to continue its association with the Kennel Club.
The suspension subject to the conditions set out byt the General Committee remains in force. However, as
previously mentioned there is an open door invitation for the League and others to find an acceptable
alternative arrangement for holding of one annual UK Sieger competition.
There is a shared wish that a position of mutual understanding and acceptance
can be reached with all parties"
We will inform members of progress as and when appropriate.
