The SACC delegates and executive met in Johannesburg on 17 March to discuss a variety of matters.
Please note that several of the fees payable to SACC will increase with effect from 1 July. The fee increases may look a little steep at first glance, but please remember that it has been a number of years since the last increase and costs have increased considerably. The annual breeder membership fee, for example, has increased from R100 to R150. This is an increase of only R4 per month, and includes free advertising (for one breed) on our website. If you do your registrations be-fore 1 July, the old fees will still be payable. See schedule of fees and forms.
We heard that most clubs are now using the cards, rather than rosettes, for cats which receive Challenge, Premier, Grand or Supreme certificates at shows, and that these seem popular with exhibitors.
The breeder pages of our web-site will be amended to show whether the listed breeders are active, or have not recently registered kittens. This is because of complaints received from the public that they contact breeders from the website, only to be told that they are not breeding at present.
