┬╗ Trial Manager Program     
Trial Manager (Secretary) program
The Trial Manager program was developed in 2015 by Racine Hyatt following discussions with Debbie Reynolds, Irene Klotz, Lance Collins, Andrea Duggan and Darin Clarke about the increasing numbers of trial documents completed incorrectly, due in large part to a lack of attention/knowledge of IPO and GSSCC Trial Rules. This program incorporates information and guidelines from a previous model which was updated, amended and adopted by the GSSCC Executive in 2016.
Susan Lawrence was appointed as GSSCC Trial Manager Program Coordinator in 2017 and will be responsible for program implementation and execution.  She will also liaise with the members, GSSCC Head Judge, trial & show paperwork committees and other program coordinators Assisting Sue is Debbie Reynolds. 

Starting in January 2019, all GSSCC trials MUST have GSSCC certified trial managers.

Trial Manager (Secretary) Seminars and Certification

Any club or Region planning to host a Trial Manager/Secretary seminar must:
  • secure a Teaching Trial Manager
  • complete a Request for Event Form (see official documents page)
  • send the completed Request to the Regional Trial Director who will ensure the dates are available and forward the Request to the Trial Manager Program Coordinator
  • the Trial Manager Coordinator will approve or deny the Request and communicate same to the Regional Trial Director and Host Club contact person
Reference document: Trial Paperwork Guide



1.  Provide standardized training and certification for Trial Manager/Secretary 


2.  Increase the number of qualified and certified Trial Manager/Secretary‘s through education and testing.


3.  Only certify participants to become Trial Manager/Secretary’s that can properly and correctly complete all official trial paperwork, which includes all trial summary sheets and scorebooks.


4.  To ensure that all trial paperwork and scorebooks submitted to the GSSCC  are correct.


Before attending a Trial Manager/Secretary seminar we would advise that every member read and familiarize themselves with the above.....TRIAL PAPERWORK GUIDE.  They should also familiarize themselves with the trial summary paperwork and judges sheets found on the website under official documents.  Talk with your club executive and ask them to show you a scorebook and familiarize yourself with the completion of said scorebook for registration.


At the present time every member who attends the TRIAL MANAGER/SECRETARY SEMINAR should understand, that if they become certified, it is a three year certification.  In that three years, they must be a Trial Manager/Secretary at a club trial, at least ONCE in those three years.  If this does not happen, they will lose their certification and will have to re-certify at another seminar in the future.
