One of the unique benefits of the American Border Collie Association is the use of promotional money accumulated from each registration at the rate of $ 1.00 per dog to promote the border collie and border collie events throughout the United States and Canada through its members. Money is available to members in each state with request deadlines on February 15 and July 15 of each year. A written request must be submitted by the member with a detailed description of the activity or event that they are requesting funds for. The information should include the description, date(s), members involved, location and amount of money requested. Only current members will be considered. Be sure to have your written request in by the deadline. Requests may be mailed, faxed or emailed into the office.
