North America JGV

22 May 2019

Many of you are probably unaware of the fact that in June of 2018, a few individuals in the US received a request from the newly elected JGHV Executive Committee in Germany, that an effort be made to form a JKV Club in North America. There are many JKV Clubs in Germany, and they serve as a point of contact for Breed Clubs from various geographical areas with the JGHV Executive Board. They also help organize seminars and provide information and support to their local hunters and dog training organizations. In Germany, these Clubs are well supported and serve a broad base membership.

In response to this request, we contacted all of the Chairpersons of the various JGHV and Breed Clubs in North America, made them aware of the request from Germany, and asked for their participation in a tele-conference to discuss the matter. Most of the Clubs responded positively and agreed to participate. We had several phone conferences involving these Chairpersons, and over the next 8 months had several exchanges with the Executive Board asking questions about the structure, function, and responsibilities of this proposed new Club. Germany was quick to respond with detailed answers to all of our concerns and questions. Finally, in the spring of 2019, the initial core group of Chairpersons agreed to form a JGV Committee as opposed to a formal Club. It was determined the Committee would consist of 3 people, and would serve as the official point of contact for all correspondence from North American Clubs to the JGHV Executive Board. An election was held, and the Chairpersons elected the following people to the Committee: Lynda Krull, Chairman, Rob Engleking, Sargent at Arms, Ken Bremer, official Translator, and John Pagel, First Alternate.

This Committee is in the process of establishing Rules of Procedure and Operating Protocol to best serve all the North American Clubs. During the interim, we have received our first communications from Germany, and we are very pleased to announce that within only 2 days, they have been quickly and efficiently translated by Ken Bremer, and have been send to Chairpersons of individual chapters. However, NAJGV has already posted the documents, including Articles from JGHV Director of Testing, Joseph Westermann, and the updated MOMs documents, on the website najgv.com for everyone to read. It is the intention of this Committee to forge a strong and beneficial bond between the new JGHV Executive Board and all of the Clubs in North America.

We welcome your feedback, and suggestions.

Waidmannsheil!
