How to Sanction your Poultry Show with the ABA

Clubs can sanction ABA shows with their agreement to adhere to the ABA Official Show Rules. 

Requirements:  All judges at all ABA sanctioned meets must be members in good standing of the ABA. At District, State, or Provincial and Special Meets; a minimum of one judge must be ABA licensed and not less than 50% of the judging staff must be ABA licensed and all other judges must be APA licensed or Canadian provincial licensed to judge bantams. 

Effective January 2019, the ABA will no longer collect Sanctioning Club Member Dues. Any club wishing to sanction their show with the ABA may do so with a $50.00 per show sanction fee.
