Federation Resource Kit

The large hard-copy file that needed to be updated by Society Secretaries every other year is now on-line. Club Secretaries should now remove the old hard copies from their shelves, except perhaps for those sections which do not date. Section D2, which contains rules and guidelines for exhibition classes and the official mark sheets, once updated, will also be available on the web.

Federation is also reviewing the site content and functionality; comments, and suggestions would be most welcome – contact the Federation Sectary, Bob Gibson. Has your Society provided updated information yet?
