The Registration Committee usually meets on weekends three to four times a year depending on the case load.  For meetings that are not held virtually, in accordance with policy, Committee members are reimbursed for the cost of travelling to and from the meeting and receive a per diem to cover the cost of accommodation and meals.

While not a requirement, it will be seen as an asset if prospective candidates have a background in the legal field or some experience working with tribunals due to the quasi-judicial nature of the Committee.  However, familiarity with the Animal Pedigree Act and the CKC registration process are critical in serving on this committee.

As per the CKC By-laws, no member of the Board of Directors or Discipline or Appeal Committees shall be a member.

Where meetings cannot be held virtually, Committee members are reimbursed for travel expenses and receive a per diem to cover the cost of accommodation and meals associated with their attendance at Board meetings (as required) and regular Committee meetings; this is in accordance with CKC policy. Audit Committee meetings are typically held via Zoom.

Applicants must be voting members in good standing with the Canadian Kennel Club and possess a sound comprehension of the operation and purpose of the organization.
