Report about the general assembly 2006

On Saturday August 19th 2006, our annual general assembly took place in the Cafe of the Körnerhalle in Schwechat near Vienna. A lot of members accepted the invitation and after the welcome of the members and the statement of the quorum Mr. Harald Michal and Mrs. Christine Feldberger, were confirmed as scrutinizers unanimously.
The approval of the agenda of the current assembly and the minutes of the general assembly 2005 passed and afterwards the board gave its reports.
In the area of exhibitions, the number of exhibited cats raised again in comparisation with the show year 2004. However there is currently lesser demand than offers for catshows and the future plans will be adopted accordingly. For 2006 there are currently 8 shows scheduled.
In the area of the pedigrees, KKÖ issued 2005 even slightly more pedigrees than 2004, which was the largest amount of pedigrees since his foundation.
The amount of members increased 2005 slightly.
The president, Mr. Preiss, appreciated his gratitude to all which helped during the shows, the members of the board, the members of the show commission and to all which are not in a official function.

A bylaws proposal from the board, to change the amount of members necessary to call a extraordinary general assembly from 1/3 to 10%, was carried.
This adoption was necessary due to new legislation.


The general assembly confirmed with a large majority the proposal to declare Mr Franz Rathbauer as honorary member of KKÖ.
Mr. Rathbauer is member since a long time. He served in different KKÖ functions and was always available if support or advice was necessary.
He always emphasized that it would be the right time for younger members, but he was always available and fulfilled his task satisfactorily. He leaves his position in the executive board, but will be available with help and advice. Particular as member of the show commission where he will be responsible for sponsoring and public relations.

Afterwards the proposals were discussed. Only carried proposals are mentioned here.

The KKÖ Frequent Exhibitor Program was mentioned in several proposals from a member. The board explained that this program is in use since several years, however the detailed rules are not mentioned at the KKÖ homepage.
The board stated to recalculate the bonus points for the year 2005 and inform the respective members as well as to describe the detailed rules at the KKÖ homepage. The proposals were therefore withdrawn by the member.

Information about mating rules with stud males without a FIFe pedigree will be adopted at the KKÖ homepage to fit to the current KKÖ rules for breeding and health.

The consulting and support of breeders and members is currently done with individual meetings. This has to be adopted at the KKÖ homepage accordingly..

The board informed all participants, that starting with January 1st 2007 all cats which will be used for breeding shall be micro chipped. This will be necessary due to a rule from our international organization FIFe.
