A subsidiary of the International Progressive Breeders' Alliance founded 1996
The International Progressive Cat Breeders' Alliance, (IPCBA) founded in 1996 is the first registry of its kind, uniting breeders and enthusiasts of all breeds of cats in one unique registry.  IPCBA is composed of Chartered Breed Associations.  In IPCBA, chartered Breed associations work similar to the manner in which Breed committees function in other registries.  The main difference is that IPCBA gives full control of the breed to the breed charters.  Full control means that the breed charter determines (among other things):  1) the breed standard for their individual breed, 2) point allocation, 3) breed groups, 4) permissible out crosses, 5) what individual colors and patterns are acceptable for championship.  In contrast, other registries dictate how the breed standard must be written, for example 1) point allocation, 2) one has to apply to have a color or pattern accepted for championship, and 3) in the case of adding one simple dilute, all colors in the dilute category would have to be accepted....... this is not so in IPCBA.
The founders of the International Progressive Cat Breeders' Alliance believe that the breeding of all animals is an art form, and as such, breeders should have the freedom to express themselves and their vision for their breed (s) in their breeding programs.
IPCBA was developed to:
 
Give creative freedom to breeders to develop new breeds of cats and to preserve the old breeds as they wish without interference from registries.
Create an international alliance among cat breeders and enthusiasts around the world.
Unite breeders of all breeds of cats in one unique, powerful organization, in which breeders work together to protect all cat breeds and their hobby from restrictive legislation.
The IPCBA currently recognizes 73 new and old breeds of cats, making it the largest all-breed cat registry in the world.
