Membership Voting Rights

Each member in good standing whose dues are paid for the current year shall be entitled to one vote per individual membership or two votes per family membership.  A junior membership (under 18 years) is not entitled to vote.

Membership Classes

There are four classes of memberships: Family, Individual, Junior, and Associate. Such memberships shall not be discriminated on the basis of race, creed, color or sex.

Membership Requirements

Following submission of an application form and payment of dues, a prospective member must attend two (2) membership meetings and work at one club activity. A waiver of the meeting requirements can submitted in writing, to the membership chair, for club board approval.  The written request must give a valid reason (i.e. evening work schedule, etc.) If the waiver is approved by the club board, the applicant must work at three (3) activities, including, but not limited to sanctioned tests, practices, public training days and agility demonstrations.

When an application and appropriate dues are received by the membership chair a card will be sent to the applicant, to record membership requirements.  A club member in good standing must sign the card as sponsor.  The club member responsible for the required work activity(s) must sign as a verification of completion of the work.  Upon completion of the requirements (2 meetings and 1 activity, or 3 activities) the card must be sent/given to the membership chairperson.  At the next scheduled meeting the club board will review and make a recommendation to the general membership. Club voting on acceptance of the applicant takes place by secret ballot. All applicants and guests are asked to leave the room for voting.  Applicants will be notified by letter of the ballot results.

An applicant is entitled to receive the monthly club newsletter, and to participate in the member-only practices generally held each Sunday morning (weather permitting) at Kim's Canine. The practice monitor will be published in the newsletter, along with any deviations to the schedule.
