Cornwall Camelid Association is run by a Committee of up to eight volunteers, a Chair and seven general members who cover all aspects and responsibilities of the Association. Our Chair is Sandra Muriel, Alpacas of Cornwall, the Crewenna Herd.
We come from all walks of life and professions, all living in Cornwall (or within a breath of the border), a few of us are indigenous to Cornwall, all of us are owners and we share a love for our Camelids and the aim to promote Alpacas and Llamas in Cornwall.
Officers are proposed, seconded and elected at the Annual General Meetings in January each year; there have been changes over the years and each person's contribution has been a building block to bring the Committee and Association to where it is today. We meet officially four times a year but are in regular communication to roll out your Association.
Meetings, workshops, financial requirements, newsletters and up-to-date communications all take time and dedication to provide our members with a cohesive Association they can be a part of. We have welfare officers who can provide exemplary advice and support.
Our Annual Shows (Halter and Fleece) require a lot of organisation and planning which is shared across the committee and CCA members. As soon as the final tent peg is packed away from one show, the planning for next years show begins!
