Drought Relief Fundraising Dog Shows and Virtual Dog Show - Entries Closing Soon!!
Two Championship Shows will be conducted on Saturday 23rd & Sunday 24th January 2016 in Gladstone (at the Showgrounds) for the purpose of raising funds for Drought Relief. In conjunction with these two Shows, a Virtual Dog Show is also being conducted to enable members and the public to support this initiative.
We are pleased to welcome Mr Tony Valli (NSW) and Mrs Noreen Harris (VIC) as our Judges for these Shows.
The majority of Queensland is now drought declared and while this fundraising initiative will go nowhere near solving the issue, it is our way of supporting those affected by the impacts of the current environmental conditions.
All monies raised will go directly to Drought Relief initiatives.
Please support this initiative with your entries for either the Championship Shows and / or the Virtual Show. The weekend should be an enjoyable time for members to come together and enjoy our hobby while supporting a very worthy cause. Entries are available online through Show Manager or by paper entries. Virtual Show entries can be lodged through Show Manager or by the form in the link. Donations are welcome and appreciated.

Strategic Plan Update
In 2015, Dogs Queensland established a Strategic Business Plan to map a pathway of the organisation over a five year period towards a desired future state. The plan was developed in consultation with a large number of interested Dogs Queensland members.
It is important that this document is a “living document” and includes a consistent review and reporting cycle. The report (link below) documents the progress of the Strategic Business Plan up to a reporting date of 30 September 2015. The Strategic Planning Committee are adopting a quarterly reporting program to keep members informed and engaged with the process and progress of strategic priorities. The next report will be for the quarter ended 31 December 2015 and will be released to members in January 2016.
The report is structured to provide an “update at a glance” for members as well as detailed information in the appendices for members who wish to obtain further information. The Overview section of the update report provides some relevant context relating to the Strategic Plan.
Over time, the planning and reporting process and format will be reviewed and improved and constructive feedback is welcome.
Should members have any questions in relation to the report or strategic planning, they are welcome to direct these to Craig Pettett (email to email@example.com is the most effective method) or can be lodged to the office who will pass on to Craig for response.
