8.        Secretary’s Report 2023/24

8.1      In many past seasons we use to have 2 x CACIBs per season, but in previous 2 x seasons we had 3 x CACIB shows after a long time.

8.2      We also had dog shows in Karachi during previous season. Karachi Chapter conducted 1 x All Breed Show and 3 x Breed shows. Karachi Chapter is coming up well.

8.3      As Chairperson Show Committee, I feel that our focus has only been on Bahria Town Ground for conduct of shows. It had added advantage of security other than being always available. But this caused a disconnect from other areas of the City like Gulberg and DHA. Fanciers from other areas have difficulty in travelling to Bahria Town to attend the shows. Hence in previous season we had dog shows in DHA and Gulberg. We will keep looking for more avenues to conduct the shows.

8.4      Breed clubs have to support CACIB and KCP All Breed shows by entering good and more dogs. GDCP shows full support to CACIB shows to make them successful. Whereas PRC and GSDCP are reluctant to show their dogs in CACIB shows. These clubs mostly want to show their dogs under specialty judges in breed specialty shows. It is strongly suggested that affiliate clubs must work towards success of KCP Shows like CACIBs.

8.5      Individuals can have their personal opinion. Individuals have the right to discuss the quality of judging in personal gatherings with family and friends. But the same is not allowed to be done during the show. A judge cannot be disrespected.

9.        Approval of Minutes of Previous Meeting.   Minutes of previous meeting of KCP which was held on 27th May 2023 were presented by the secretary for endorsement of the present members. Minutes were endorsed by all the present members.

10.      Discussion on Agenda Points

10.1    Ratification of the Affiliation of the Azad Kashmir Kennel Club. The club was accepted as a breed club and affiliation with KCP was granted by President KCP using his executive powers. It was ratified by the present members during the meeting. Executive order No. KCP/A-4/365/Clubs dated 18 January 2024 is appended below as Annexure A.

10.2    Ratification of Points Approved by Circulation.       The preferred way to approve any agenda point is by physically holding the Managing Committee Meeting. However, sometimes physical meetings are difficult to be held because of lack of time, availability of members, who have to travel long distances for one or two minor approvals. Therefore, Managing Committee resolved that in such cases, the approval can be obtained by Video Conference or by Circulation. Following decisions take through circulation were validated by the members during meeting.

10.2.1            Addition of Mrs. Sumbal Shahbaz to Managing Committee

10.2.2            Acceptance of resignation by Lt Col (Retd) Faiz Mukhtar

10.3    Proposal to Reaffirm the Power of President to pass an Executive Order in Urgent Need.         It was resolved that the power already given to President to pass an executive order should continue. If President, in his opinion, feels that it is required for the running of KCP and meeting of Executive Committee cannot be called, he may pass such an order. However, this executive order will be ratified by the Managing Committee in the next meeting. If Managing Committee does not ratify in the next meeting, ipso-facto, this order will cease to exit.

10.4    Discussion on the Letter of Mr. Farid Qureshi (President PRC). KCP Letter No. KCP/36/40/Affl dated 13 February 2024 (appended below as Annexure B) stated that Rottweiler Club of Pakistan (RCP) can reactivate itself because its affiliation with KCP was still intact. As a response President Pakistan Rottweiler Club (PRC) sent a response letter to KCP. After discussion the matter at length a committee was formed to further probe the issue and find a solution acceptable by all parties. The committee will form TORs for the said inquiry and will submit its findings, opinion and proposal for way forward to the managing committee of KCP in 4-6 weeks. The committee is appended below: -
