the CFA Ragdoll Breed Council
The CFA Breed Councils were established in 1970 to serve as an advisory
body on breed standards to the CFA Executive Board. Each of the breeds
recognized by CFA for championship competition has its own Breed
Council and Breed Council Secretary.
The CFA Breed Councils are comprised of individuals experienced
in their chosen breed/division section, and who meet other eligibility
requirements established by the CFA Executive Board. Each Breed Council
channels opinions and suggestions from the individual breeder to
the Board through the specific breed secretary, and the breed
standard is updated as the breed progresses. From time to time, each breed
council also updates its breed profile, a more informal introduction
to the breed.
- Have a CFA
registered cattery name.
- Are at least 18 years of age or older.
- Have bred and registered
with CFA at least three litters of the appropriate breed/division.
- A judge or an officer of another cat registering association
is not eligible.
In addition to the above requirements, membership
is limited to individuals who have met either of the following
Bred at least one CFA Grand Champion or
Grand Premier of the appropriate breed/division,
Registered one litter of the appropriate breed/division within
the previous two calendar years and, have exhibited a cat/kitten

previous two calendar years.
Membership by eligible individuals in any breed/division section
may be obtained by submitting to the Central Office a completed
membership application form together with the appropriate fee(s).
A membership runs from January 1 to December 31. Upon receipt of
the membership application and fee(s), the Central Office will
place the member's name on the mailing list for the member editions
of the CFA Almanac, and, when available for distribution, the Show

of the Breed Council.
