Thoughts from the Pantry – Judge Review

Thoughts from the Pantry – Judge Review

Discussion Document – Review of I.G.B.A Judges Panel 2024 AGM 

A proposal to review the process of personnel application through to final registration onto the IGBA judge panel has been submitted for member consideration at  2024 AGM.

The proposal is presented as a discussion document with the objective of enabling members and particularly current panel judges to think about, and have input into, moulding the future of judging Glosters.  

Remember the commentary is in no particular order, placed before members to invite and stimulate positive discussion ….. Once read please provide comment to admin@igba.co.uk   

So what are the thoughts ?

Convene a meeting of IGBA panel judges to discuss and make progress toward:

  • Making the IGBA Judge Panel a body with professional processes and standards, and applying those to the activity of judging Gloster canaries.

Preliminary Content

  • Discuss and agree the application and promotion of consistent type selection.
  • Discuss and create guidelines and education programme for future judges.
  • Formalise criteria to be used for nominating a judge.
  • Assess nominations received – sanction/refer/decline.
    • Judges to pay an incremental £10 per annum on top of their relevant yearly subscription to be enrolled on the panel.
    • An IGBA panel judge pin badge and registration certificate to be made available.
      • Fee entitles entry to the “IGBA Panel Judge Club”
    • Discuss and make annual recommendations for overseas judge to IGBA members show.
    • Form an international committee.
    • Quarterly Zoom meetings feeding back to main committee.
    • Formalise criteria to be used for nominating a judge.

Include (by invitation) a selection of past IGBA panel judges who are currently excluded from the panel due to existing rules. Only those active in the fancy should be considered e.g. involved in some capacity with birds/clubs, maybe limit numbers or rotate on a yearly basis ? Avoids loss of experience.

Panel Membership Benefits:

  • Members have a professional status,
  • Membership opens up opportunities to UK judging engagements and more prestigious events worldwide. Improves links with affiliated clubs. All add to status.
  • Become involved in decision making processes.
  • Unify Gloster standard and offer progressive considerations. Previous introduction of classes for light birds and more recently additions now cater for “Any Other Colour”.
  • Put something back into the fancy – be part of the future.

Club Benefits:

  • Streamlining of active judges panel – removal of dead wood on a yearly basis
  • Generate incremental revenue.
  • Spreading the workload without losing overall control.
