Important Information for CDJA Members:
 

  • CKC Policy & Procedures - Chapter 7
    APPENDIX 1 – Personal Use of Social Media Guidelines for CKC Judges [Board Motion #40-09-20] 

    Judges are held to higher standards of conduct and should abide by the CKC principles of impartiality, integrity, and ethics outlined in this section on the use of social media.
    Judges must:
    • Be mindful, when using social media, of their professional association with the CKC and strive not to bring CKC into disrepute.
    • Understand that what is said and done on social media can reflect on yourself, your colleagues and the CKC as a whole.
    • Maintain professional decorum and be aware that using social media to solicit assignments, make derogatory comments, re-posting comments or endorsements, or for self-promotion may result in
    disciplinary action.
    • Refrain from the expression of personal opinions on controversial subjects, including placements, judging, and critiques which can undermine the credibility of judges and the CKC, and erode the trust
    of CKC members.
    • Consider inappropriate public and private contacts through social media the same as verbal or written contacts and subject to regulations listed under rule 4.1.5, violation which must be reported to CKC. This includes contact or friend requests from parties having no previous relationship with the judge.

  • APPENDIX 2 – Guidelines for Exhibitors Interacting with Judges Through Social Media [Board Motion #34-09-20]

    CKC would like to remind exhibitors of the following rule:
    4.1.5  (Show Rules and Regulations) No person may approach a judge either directly or otherwise, orally, or in writing,or electronically, to favour an entry. Disciplinary action will be taken against any person who violates this rule or against a judge who fails to report any contravention of this rule to the CKC within 14 days of the act.

    Exhibitors should refrain from promoting a dog by (not limited to):
    • Sending photos of recent wins to a judge at an upcoming show;
    • Contacting a judge to discuss the merits of a dog;
    • Sending friend or contact requests to judges with which they have no pre-existing contact or
    relationship

  • Permit Judges - at the last CKC Special Board Meeting, the following changes were made:
    Because of COVID-19, the Board approved the following three motions, effective immediately:
    i. Judges on permit and unable to accept assignments for this permit will be allowed to commence the application for their next permit; however they may not accept assignments for this permit until the requirements for the previous permit are completed.
    ii. All judges and applicant judges will be granted a one (1) year extension of any deadlines to complete requirements for their licensing and approval.
    iii. Any permit judge who has completed a minimum of three (3) assignments and is within five (5) or fewer dogs to completing that permit, providing they have an approved but cancelled assignment due to the pandemic, will be approved as completed for their permit.

  • At the November 2019 meeting, the Board approved a FIFTY DOLLAR ($50) rebate for CKC conference attendance once only, effective 2019 to 2022, to each CDJA Member who has been a voting member for the preceding five consecutive years.
    Members need to apply for the rebate and provide proof of attendance. Please send your email request to the CDJA Secretary
