Yes, that's right! The MA wants YOU! We want your eenthusiasm and your ideas!

What do you see as the future for your region, for TICA, and for the cat fancy? Two committees are forming now, to investigate and discuss ways to improve and grow the region and the association. Jane Handelsman and her team are discussing current TICA and Cat Fancy show and club issues, which rangs from transportation to show management to culture in the show hall. They are looking for ideas and outside-the-box thinking. If you are interested and you have some fresh ideas, contact Jane to join!

Tito Acosta, a family man with an interest in growing the region, is looking for other young people to join his committee, aimed at encouraging younger exhibitors and breeders, and looking for ways to ensure the cat fancy stays healthy for the next generation. If you are a young person yourself or someone who is concerned about the future of our hobby, contact Tito to join his group!


The Region has a new logo! Thanks to Courtney Bell and Brenda Russo for organizing the contest. Thanks to the creative artists who submitted designs. Most of all, thanks to all who voted! The winning design was submitted by Courtney Bell. It will be used as a fundraiser for the MA region. Look for these items at a show near you!
