Feb 2024, The 2024 National Specialty Information Brochure has been posted to the ABTC 2024 National Website.  Please take a look at all of the great activities we have planned for our Belgian Tervuren and their people.  The 2024 National Specialty Information Brochure is also available for download from the Member io.group and is being mailed to people who requested a hard copy.

 

In addition to Trophy Donations the website Specialty Store is open for the special events being held during the National and many of the Merchandise Items.  Specialty Clothing and some additional store items will be added to the Online store over the next several days.  Starting this year, there is not a mail-in order form; Specialty Orders are through the Specialty Store on the website.  This is a user-friendly experience which increases efficiency and accuracy.  Lisa Christopher has graciously volunteered to accept phone calls to assist anyone needing help with the Specialty Store.

 

Due to the rapidly increasing costs of shipping, and confronted with a loss on shipping fees for the last National; the base price of shipping this year is increased by $5.  Shipping can be very expensive for small hobby clubs who depend on retail shipping.  To help our members; we are incorporating into the order process an option for pick up vs shipping.  If you really want some merchandise, we think you may find a friend willing to pick up for you.  Just tell us in your order, and the release form will be handled at pickup.

The 2024 National will be held in
Wilmington, Ohio
June 8-15, 2024
