Governing Council is the governing body elected by the Members of Dogs West to manage the affairs of the Association.
Elections are held each year, with a third of the Council being elected for each financial year. The President and Vice President are popularly elected by the Members for a two-year term.
Meetings of Governing Council are typically held on the fourth Wednesday of each month, and are open to Members of the Association to attend as observers.
All Councillors must sign and abide by the Dogs West Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA). You can find a blank NDA here.
