Temporary suspension for select judge & show rules extended for 2021

The APHA Board of Directors has extended a pause in a set of judge and show rules for 2021 through the end of the 2021 show season.

In early spring 2020, the APHA Board of Directors temporarily suspended a series of judge and show management rules to allow shows to more easily hold their events and make last-minute changes in the fluid COVID-19 environment. At the end of 2020, APHA extended those temporary rule suspensions through June 30, 2021.

The APHA Board of Directors recently assessed the environment that their members were still facing around the world and determined that it benefitted a majority of APHA shows and exhibitors to further extend these temporary rule suspensions through December 31, 2021.
