to the National Golden Retriever Council's web site (NGRC). The NGRC
is the national organisation representing the interests of Golden Retriever enthusiasts through the authority of the Golden Retriever Clubs of Australia.
Twenty years on, it is worth remembering the incoming President's ideas, expressed at the NGRC's inaugural meeting, of what a Breed Council should try to achieve and how it should operate.
are that to work, a
Breed Council should divorce itself completely from any Club politics.
Each Club reports to the Breed Council, but in no way does the Council
talk with individual members of each Club. The Council gives support to
the breed Clubs in each state but does not interfere with the running
of the individual breed Clubs.
Council should be accessible to the members of these Clubs, through
official channels via the Clubs. The Council should be a group that has
the best of the breed at heart in whatever it does.
Council should have worldwide links - it gives the opportunity for
contact with other countries.The
NGRC cannot direct you to individual club members, breeders or any
other person associated with the Australian Golden Retriever Clubs.
contact the Golden Retriever Club in your State for information and advice relating to the golden retriever (see Contacts)
