The Gordon Setter Breed Council is made up of 3 representatives from each of the 4 UK based Breed Clubs. The delegated members are there to represent the views of their breed clubs, thus bringing a wealth of experience and knowledge together, and reaching a concensus on matters concerning the breed. This enables the breed to speak with one voice to the Kennel Club and to all members on significant issues. Health matters are a particular area of interest and the Breed Council also draws up the judging lists for the breed.
Matters for the Breed Council must come through one of the member clubs.It does not have a separate membership from the Breed Clubs and it does not raise/ hold funds other than enough to cover expenses for meetings and administration.
