The Agility Liaison Council is made up of 13 regional representatives, elected for a three year term to act as a channel of communication between Agility clubs, competitors, and the Kennel Club. The Council was set up to represent grass-roots opinion within the sport at the Kennel Club, and to promote a better understanding among competitors of how the Kennel Club functions. It meets twice per year, and representatives hold area meetings prior to each council meeting to provide a platform for proposals and discussion items to be raised. The meetings also provide feedback from the Kennel Club on recent developments and decisions.
The Council reviews the Agility Regulations and advises the Kennel Club on any changes that may be needed, and is actively involved in strategic planning to enable Agility to continue and flourish. Council proposals can result in fundamental changes in Kennel Club policy and the Kennel Club values the important work the Councils do.
Council members are always interested in hearing the views and ideas of competitors, and will be seen competing at, judging at or managing many shows during the year.
