  • 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:
