Hello, my name is Gwen Haynes and I have been the Treasurer for the RCC for the past 5 years. I have been involved with Rottweilers for the past 10 years. I have been instrumental in organizing three herding trials for the RCC and thereby allowing the RCC to hold their very own herding trials. I have also helped in putting on the two tracking trials the RCC have had, as well as organizing the 2010 RCC National Sieger Show and helping with the 2009 RCC Nationals in Calgary, AB.
As you can see, I feel it is very important to volunteer one’s time to this National Breed Club so that our club can remain in the forefront for the Rottweiler in performance events etc. My goals for this club are to be able to see them host their own drafting test as well as their own urban tracking tests. This is something I will work towards in the next few years. During my time as Treasurer for this club, we have been able to donate substantial monies to Rottweiler only rescues across Canada as well as donate to various education groups dedicated to the diseases surrounding our breed (ie: Rottweiler Health Foundation, OVC Canine Cancer Foundation etc.) Your membership fees help towards these wonderful donations.
In closing, I would just like to say that our club is only as strong as its members and volunteers. I feel it is very important as a member, to volunteer your time to at least one event in your area. These trials and fun days etc. can only be attainable through the help of the volunteers. If you wish to see your club continue to have these events, then I encourage each and every one of you to volunteer your time where you can. If you ever have any questions with respect to the finances of the club, please do not hesitate to contact myself.
