The Tonkinese CFA Breed Council (BC) is affiliated with the Cat Fanciers' Association (CFA). The breed council members propose changes to the Tonkinese Breed Standard. The CFA Board of Directors must give final approval for the change to go into effect.The BC is also responsible for education through presentations at the CFA International Cat Show and through CFA judge's workshops. Membership in the Breed Council is restricted to Tonkinese Breeders since its main purpose is to guide the Tonkinese Breed Standard.
