A person may become a prospective member after submission of an application with sponsorship by two (2) BCDC members in good standing.
The process for any subsequent member of an already represented domicile who wishes to become a full member of BCDC is as follows: the individual must first serve the club in some capacity prior to being voted upon. The individual can then be introduced at one meeting and may be voted upon at the next scheduled meeting.
During the prospective membership period you are required to finish two sessions of classes, attend three (3) meetings and complete service to the club equivalent to one credit towards Member In Good Standing to become eligible to be voted on for full membership.
The Membership Committee will take special situations into consideration.
The Membership Committee will meet periodically to discuss the applications, and then will forward their recommendations to the membership. Applicants will be notified in writing, in advance of the meeting, if they are not going to be recommended for membership.
Once full membership is granted, the member receives full membership benefits, including reduced training fees.
Members in good standing with BCDC not only get to enjoy the commaraderie of like minded dog enthusiasts, they also receive discounts on classes that they take in the future. Also, BCDC members are given priority when seminars are offered, also at reduced rates.
BCDC also has several social events through the year that are open to members only such as our annual Howloween party, Christmas Holiday party, awards dinner and annual membership picnic.
BCDC also maintains a club library consisting of many titles pertaining to Health, Training, Agility, Obedience, Raising and many other Canine Topics. The library is available to members of BCDC.
Club members are also allowed to use the club house and agility barn to train when there is no class in session. This is by reservation only to club members.
The club dues are $75.00 per year payable when you are elected to membership (as a Single Membership).
The normal club dues year is from July to June.
