Attention Club Secretaries - Penalty Fees

Posted in KUSA News

Unfortunately, the current rate of penalties levied does not appear to act as a deterrent.

Advisory Statement from the Chairman & Negotiating Committee of Fedco to the Boxer Members of KUSA

Posted in KUSA News

At the December 2016 meeting of the Federal Council of the Kennel Union of Southern Africa (Fedco), two members of Fedco, vested with the necessary executive powers, were tasked to open negotiations with the Federation of Boxer Clubs of South Africa (FBCSA). This resulted in a series of meetings which commenced in January 2017 and, seven months later, are still ongoing. At the most recent meeting on 12 August 2017, it was decided by the parties that this might be an appropriate time to provide their respective constituents with a progress report.
