Changes for WCF judges and student judges

It was acknowledged that the WCF is almost the only WCC organization that allows double listings of judges. A board decision was made and is valid until the General Assembly that forbids WCF judges to be listed on the judges lists of other organizations. This includes WCC organizations. The only exception is the LOOF because of the agreements made in the contract.

Please find here the exact wording of the board decision:

1. WCF e.V. doesn`t accept applications anymore from judges who are already in the judges list of other organizations, including WCC members.

2. Judges should decide on which organizations judges list they want to be listed – WCF judges list or another organization.

If they will choose another organization, it is possible to keep the judges in the guest judges list, if the relevant judge is in the list of a non WCC organization.

This Board decision with character of a rule comes into force with publication and will be placed for voting on the next General Assembly.

Judging at exhibitions of Non-WCC organizations

We would like to ask our judges not to support or judge on exhibitions of the clubs “International Cat Expo ICE” and “Feline Fanciers Federation FFF” (currently Asian organizations).
Please refrain from invititations of these organizations.
This concern was discussed in the WCC meeting and there are reasons for it, so all members of the WCC agreed on this.

Date General Assembly 2019

Dear members,

unfortunately there was an error in our last newsletter:

Our General Meeting will not be held from June 22 to June 24, 2019, but one week later.

The correct date is Friday, June 28, until Sunday, June 30, 2019 here in Essen.

The registration of the members takes place on the morning of the 28th of June, after completion of the registration the GA will begin.

Further details will be announced in the official invitation.

We apologize for that, but since we had to change the date due to the WCC meeting, something was wrongly documented here.

Anneliese Hackmann

President WCF e.V.
