Yes, you can still renew for 2023!
Allow 1-3 business days for your renewal to be processed into Online Live if you renew through iCompete.
Contact the ABGA office at email@example.com or (325) 486-2242 with any questions or concerns.
Find out how to renew your ABGA membership through iCompete below:
We encourage members to renew using iCompete now to seamlessly transition their membership services. All ABGA members who wish to continue their registry services online will need to transition to iCompete once Online Live is phased out.
Our staff is actively working with software developers to fix ongoing issues with iCompete. Thank you for your patience and understanding during this process.
ABGA members who renew after January 1, 2023, are NOT eligible to vote in organizational elections, hold seats on the ABGA or JABGA Board of Directors, or maintain their Director status.
PLEASE NOTE: Our office hours are Monday through Friday, 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM CST.
Why can't I submit work through iCompete?
ABGA has received calls about submitting registration work through iCompete, our new software system.
iCompete will replace Online Live and the Blue Screen systems. It will house ABGA memberships, renewals, registry work, and show points in a single platform.
At this time, some ABGA members can only view owned animals within their iCompete dashboard (not all members are able to view animals).
Our staff is working with software developers to fix ongoing issues with iCompete and prepare for Phase 2 (registrations).
ABGA will announce when members can complete registrations, transfers, service memos, and other work through iCompete.
We encourage members to renew now using iCompete to improve and simplify their member experience going forward.
Haven't renewed yet? Learn how to renew through iCompete here:
We are currently processing work submitted on January 19, 2023.
If you have renewed for 2023 through iCompete, allow 1-3 business days for your renewal to be processed into Online Live.
FLUSHES: As of January 1, 2023, flush reports will be charged a fee of $10.00 per donor animal. Members and non-members are required to use the standardized flush form provided on ABGA's website to submit flush reports via email or regular mail. View the standardized flush form HERE.
