SECTION 2, ACS Specialty Show: 
1. The American Cockatiel Society, Inc. will pay for transportation, not to exceed coach air fare, lodging and meals (which is considered average or normal) to the American Cockatiel Society Judge that judges at Board of Directors approved shows. 

2. The Judges panel will make a recommendation for the next year’s Advanced Specialty Show Judge at the Judges Panel Annual meeting. This recommendation will consider seniority of panel judge. Also, the recommended panel judge must live outside the region of the Specialty Show and not have judged a Specialty Show in the last 5 years. The recommendation of the Judges panel will be presented to the ACS Board of Directors for final approval. Once approved by the Board of Directors, the name of the selected judge will be announced at the General membership meeting. 

3. ACS affiliated clubs will make application to host the ACS Specialty show by mailing their application to the ACS Vice President of Exhibition. That ACS Vice President will collect all applications and present all locations to the ACS Board of Directors for a vote. The ACS Specialty show will not be awarded to the same region two years in a row, (exception: if only one club applies to host the Specialty, it will be approved as the host club-regardless of regional location.) Whenever possible, this Board of Directors vote should take place at the Specialty show board meeting with the results announced at the general membership meeting.
