FIELD TRIAL SECRETARY

 

Ruth Warner has done a fantastic job for the United Retriever Club as our Field Trial Secretary over the last couple of years.   We are very sorry to learn that various personal considerations have made it necessary for her to stand down when her term of office comes to an end at the 2025 AGM.  

 

Therefore, we are looking for someone to take on this important role for the United Retriever Club.  Ideally, Ruth’s replacement will be in place soon, so that a comprehensive handover can take place during the 2024/25 season prior to election as Field Trial Secretary at the 2025 AGM.   

 

Previous experience is not of prime importance   What is required is enthusiasm, cheerfulness, administration and organisation skills, and a willingness to work hard.   The new person will be joining a strong team of Parent Body Officers and an experienced and active Field Trial Sub-Committee, all of whom are happy to provide help, support, and guidance.
