Show Management Corner
We are adding a new section called “Show Management Corner”. Please take a moment to review weekly updates to this section, share with clubs in your area and anyone this information could help.
Show Calendar Shift in 2018
Reminder: There is a shift in the calendar in 2018! Be sure to check your show dates and plan accordingly. The calendar shifts one week in 2018, thereby creating new show priority dates for APHA-approved shows. The APHA reserves show dates based on the calendar week, not upon the date. Depending on how you book your facility, this may or may not affect your show. Be sure to check with the facilities where you plan to hold your 2018 shows to make sure that your dates are still reserved.

In an effort to assist you with planning for the 2018 show season, please keep the following in mind:

    • All shows will be assigned new priority dates based upon the number of the calendar week as indicated on the APHA show calendar. Week #1 includes the first Sunday in January. (SC-090.I)
    • Example: Your show was approved on May 6-7, 2017 – that is week #19 on the APHA show calendar. In 2018, week #19 is May 12-13, 2018 – which will now be your new show priority dates.
    • All APHA regional clubs who have received approval from the Executive Committee to host shows on traditional holiday weekends on a permanent basis will continue to receive approval for those dates. (SC-090.K.5)
    • Those shows required to move forward in the APHA show calendar, thereby creating difficulty in securing facilities, have the option of requesting to move their dates back one week.
    • If the show that is requesting to move back one week is located within 250 highway miles of the show that now has priority on those dates as determined by the APHA show calendar, it will not be able to be approved unless all affected show managements agree to waive the mileage restriction. (SC-090.J and SC-090-K.1)
    • Effective for the 2018 calendar year only, we will accept show applications prior to the completion of your 2017 shows to assist you in securing your dates.
