Show Committee Seminars

Are you a new event committee member?  Have you been working with the committee for some time but still have questions?  Have you been the show chair for many years but aren’t sure of all the new AKC policies?  If you answered yes to any of these questions the AKC Show Committee Seminar is for you!

These seminars cover topics such as AKC paperwork, superintendent & judges selection, preparing a premium list, event hearings, new AKC rules, regulations, and policies and much more!  A knowledgeable and experienced AKC representative facilitates the seminar and is available to answer any of your questions about putting on the best event you can. 

Seminars are scheduled throughout the year.  To find the latest information on upcoming seminars, click here and select “Show Chairman” as the seminar type.  If your club is interested in hosting a seminar please contact Bri Tesarz at (919) 816-3514 or glt@akc.org at least six months in advance.
