UNITED KENNEL CLUB, INC.
KALAMAZOO, MICH. Dec., 9, 2011 – To encourage both new and existing clubs to host events, United Kennel Club now offers two separate incentive programs. The New Club Incentive (NCI) program is available to new clubs and the New Event Incentive (NEI) program is available to active, existing clubs.
For a new club to take advantage of the NCI program on their first weekend, the club must host four conformation events during the Saturday/Sunday show weekend or at least two trials for performance events in a weekend. The incentives of this program include: waived licensing fees, waived UKC recording fee of $1.50 per dog and free paperwork for that club’s first weekend of events.
The alternative New Event Incentive program is available to active, existing clubs that host new events, which have been approved to license the new event and have not been offered the New Club Incentive in the past. This applies to conformation clubs who choose to add a performance event and obedience, rally obedience and/or agility clubs who choose to add conformation. For these clubs, licensing fees will be waived for their first weekend.
United Kennel Club is excited to offer these two incentive programs. It’s an effective way to help new clubs get started and to help active, existing clubs try new venues.
