The Club is somewhat unique, in that it has had but two secretaries, namely Prue Green, Secretary for 24 years, and Christine Collins, holding the position for 25 years. The long standing Treasurer is Phyllis Parry (Maydil), who has held this post for 27 years. Prue, along with her husband Len, were among the founder members of the club, and together with Frank and Winnie Davies (Franwyns), that formed this popular regional club. Although the former are no longer with us, Winnie fact celebrated her 100th birthday in 2012.

The Committee at present is very small, due in part to the diminishing numbers of the Rough Collie in the Principality, but in its prime had such members as Dilwyn Parry (Maydil), Charlie and Pat Short (Hillandale), Pauline and Brian Skyrme (Emryks), Albert Turner (Beulah), John, Christine and Lynne Bibey, Joh and Normal Nicholas (Nickarlyn), Gordon & Rhona Lewis (Garthdale), Miriam and Don Phillips (Mirlyndon), Marlene and Gordon Speck (Malgordene), to name a few.

Probably the major event during the Clubs' history was the losing of its Challenge Certificates. However, with our persistence with the kennel Club and the Rough Collie Breed Council, a rotation was achieved between the 14 breed clubs. We are truly grateful to Carole Smedley (Antoc) for her help in achieving this fair way of distributing the available set of tickets. We thank our members for their support during that time. A trip back in time via the Minute Book shows that the Club was not without its troubles, but thankfully, this is no longer the case. The committee today is a stable one, with no major changes to its basic structure for many years.
