General Assembly 2020

As announced in July 2020, with the impact of Covid-19 and the resulting continued uncertainties, the WBFSH General Assembly 2020 will be held for the first time as a web-conference instead of a live event.

We thank the DSP studbooks, the original hosts of the WBFSH Annual Meetings 2020, for their support and understanding. They have graciously agreed to host the WBFSH Annual Meetings in Dresden in 2021.

Herewith, the WBFSH and its President Jan Pedersen cordially invite all its members and associate members to participate in this year’s General Assembly, which will be held on Wednesday 14th October 2020, at 12h00 (GMT+1/London).

Studbook representatives will be able to register free of charge, by following the below link. Please check our website regularly for updates pertaining to information regarding the GA and supporting documents.

As every year, the WBFSH General Assembly is hosted by a WBFSH studbook or group of studbooks. We are pleased to announce that British Breeding will be the technical host for the 2020 WBFSH General Assembly, and we thank them for their support.
