Animal Management Legislation Webinar 7 Dec & Other Info
Further to my update on 14 and 24 November, Dogs Queensland wishes to remind all members about two upcoming information sessions in regards to the State Government Animal Management (Protecting Puppies) and Other Legislation Amendment Act 2016.
Greg McDougall from the Department of Agriculture and Fisheries (DAF) will attend the Members' Forum on Saturday 17 December at Durack from 2:00pm. The forum will be facilitated by Lee McLean from our PR Company, PPR, and due to the importance of the issue and time restraints involved, this will be the only topic scheduled to be discussed that day.
We are also pleased to confirm that DAF will hold a ‘Webinar’ on Wednesday 7 December between 6:00pm and 7:30pm. The Webinar is capped at 300 people due to the Government’s software, but if we get an over-subscription, another session can be scheduled. All members interested in the webinar are asked to preregister for the session by clicking on the following link: https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/200021335325165827.
The Webinar can be viewed online or by dialling in from a telephone. If dialling in, there will be a charge from your telephone service provider (national landline phone charge).
Members are requested to submit any questions they may have using the following form below prior to close of business on Monday 5 December (1 question per box only please): QUESTIONS FORM.
The collated questions will then be provided to DAF, who will be able to answer the most commonly posed questions at the commencement of the Webinar, working in with a presentation looking at the Legislation and the breeder registration system. It is expected that the presentation will last for 30-40 minutes and then there will be time for further questions from members.
