We are making some changes to The American Council of Spotted Asses (ACOSA) organization and also to our Facebook Group page.
We will no longer be requiring you to be an ACOSA member in order to register a spotted ass with our registry.
To offset the monetary losses from the lack of membership fees, we are going to increase the cost of registering a spotted ass.
Effective immediately, all registrations will be $25 per animal getting registered. All registration transfers will be $15.
If you have paid for a 2022 membership we will issue a refund.
This change will by no means lessen the value of owning a registered spotted ass with ACOSA. Membership fees helped with the cost of publishing the Spotlight, office supplies and other incidentals. Since we no longer publish the Spotlight we felt that our members weren't getting much in return for their membership fees. The increase in registration fees will help us with admin costs like office supplies (certificates, ink, mailing and postage). We also will use part of the increase in registration fees to help with show prizes and give aways.
I will be spending the next few days changing forms, websites and other items to reflect our new NO MEMBERSHIP policy as well as the small increase in registration fees.
Please feel free to reach out to us if you have any questions.
As always, thank you for your support and keep putting color in your lives.
