ABGA Board of Directors
Decisions on ABGA sanctioned shows will be made by individual show secretaries at local levels, using state and local health standards and regulations. The ABGA Board encourages each show secretary to make decisions based on the safety and well-being of everyone who could be traveling to and from the shows.
The Board of Directors will continue to keep the members informed as decisions are made. We want to ensure the safety and wellbeing of our exhibitors, vendors and spectators at all shows, and we will continue to monitor events that will require judges to travel during this time.
Our goal is to offer guidance to our show secretaries and members in any capacity to keep everyone safe.
