Amendments & Resolutions

The 2019 Amendments and Resolutions are available on the CFA website, linked here.

Time to Advertise!

Now that the season is over it is time to start bragging about your achievements, and what better place than the Delegate Booklet. You know we are all bored to tears during the meeting and spend our time flipping through the booklet reading the ads to keep from falling asleep, so get yours in there and give us all something to read!

You can find all of the information on the Delegate Booklet Ads page.

Rosette Sponsors Needed!

The 2019 CFA Annual Awards Banquet will soon be here. We are in need of a number of sponsors to help offset expenses.

Breed Rosettes

There is a 200 point minimum requirement for breed awards this year, and some breeds may not have 3 cats that meet the minimum. The breed will still be $50 to sponsor if at least one cat receives a breed award. If no cats of that breed qualify, the sponsor will be given the opportunity to choose another award to sponsor or receive a refund.

These rosettes may be sponsored by clubs, breed councils, regions, individuals or catteries. The sponsor’s name will be included in the awards booklet and on a sponsor card included with the rosette.

The cost per breed/division is $50. Breeds or divisions that are unsponsored will still receive their rosettes. The deadline for payment is May 23, 2019.

National Winner and Agility Rosettes

CFA awards rosettes to the top national winning cats and agility. There are minimum point requirements for NWs this year and some spots will be vacant. We anticipate that the positions listed will be awarded, although there may be some minor changes once the final points are in.

These rosettes may be sponsored – in groups of 5 rosettes – by clubs, breed councils, regions, individuals or catteries. The sponsor’s name will be included in the awards booklet and on a sponsor card included with the rosette.

The cost per group of 5 awards is $100. Awards that are unsponsored will still receive their rosettes. The deadline for payment is May 23, 2019.

Go Crackers!

Today is National Animal Crackers Day! Yep, it’s a thing! Like we ever really need an excuse to eat animal crackers. But did you know animal crackers originated in the UK as animal shaped cookies? In 1871, the Stauffer Biscuit Company began making them in the US. It wasn’t until 1902 that the National Biscuit Company (Nabisco) began making the PT Barnum boxes of animal crackers.

There is an updated schedule of events that lists the Manx and Burmese breed council meetings.

National Chocolate Mousse Day! And updates.

As you are winding down from National Peanut Butter and Jelly Day and preparing for one of the most under-rated holidays ever, National Chocolate Mousse Day (yes, those are for real), check out a few updates. We have an updated schedule of events that includes the Tonkinese and American Shorthair breed council meetings. The ASH meeting will include a breakfast, and you can register for it through the CFA catalog.

We also have a PDF flyer for the Winn Feline Foundation Symposium held on Thursday night of the annual.

Countdown!

Why is this kitty all bundled up looking at the calendar? He’s counting down! 24 days. Just 24 days until …. yes, the premier of the final season of Game of Thrones, and he is trying on his premier party costume. And then just one day after that is the deadline for Amendments and Resolutions.

Here is a PDF document outlining how to write and submit proposals.

Remember that your amendments and resolutions must be received by Central Office by Monday, April 15, 2019. Also for US residents, that is evil tax day.

Winter is here.
