AIS Judges' Training

AIS Judges' Training provides an opportunity for judges, and other interested people, to learn more about irises including how to evaluate them based on the guidelines of the
AIS Handbook for Judges and Show Officials (seventh edition).


All judges and interested individuals are encouraged to attend these sessions
which are made available each year at the affiliate, regional and national levels of the AIS.
