The Board of Trustees is excited to bring a new program to member clubs of the AFTCA. This is a potential tax benefit to landowners that allows clubs to host trials on their land and use their facilities. During the 2019 annual meeting, the AFTCA Board of Trustees approved a new program to provide private landowners an In-kind Tax-deductible Contribution for the value of the preparation and use of their land and facilities for the purpose of conducting a field trial by a current AFTCA member club.
We are thankful to Purina for taking the lead and providing “Blue Ribbon” sponsorship of this National Awards Program. Their quality foods power many of the handler’s dogs competing. If you’re looking for a quality dog food consider Purina, thousands of amateur handlers already are!
