To maintain full member status in the AWMA, by October 1 of the year in which the annual general board meeting is held, each club must have hosted or have aproved an AWMA IPO trial to be held by December 31 of the calendar year.  If a club cannot host a trial, they may use an event approved by their regional director as a substitute; this event must be held by October 1.  Examples of acceptable events are holding an AWMA training day (could be open to anyone), hosting a club obedience and or protection fun tournament, or conducting a fundraising event for the AWMA FMBB and/or FCI team members. Clubs must contact their regional director to ensure that their club event meets the intent of this provision in the by-laws.  In addition, any club that hosts the AWMA National IPO Championship is automatically exempt from hosting an event the year following the championship.
