When a member, over any period of years, accumulates 5 starred wins in one breed and variety (i.e. White Cochins or Black Old English Game), he or she is awarded a Citation for Merit. These awards are calculated and announced annually.

All qualifying wins accumulate to the ABA member’s record as long as their dues are maintained.  If a member’s ABA dues lapse for any reason, their wins are transferred to inactive status.  ABA members wishing to re-activate their dormant wins may contact the ABA office directly for further information.
