Club Membership

Mid-Continent Kennel Club has many active members from different areas of the dog world.  We have veterinarians, breeders, performance event individuals, and of course, conformation enthusiasts.  We are always looking to expand our family and to lend a helping hand to those just getting started in the sport of purebred dogs. 

How do I become a member?

Each applicant for membership shall apply on a form as approved by the board of directors and which shall provide that the applicant agrees to abide by the constitution and bylaws and the rules of The American Kennel Club. The application shall state the name, address, and occupation of the applicant and it shall carry the endorsement of two members in good standing. Sponsor(s) of an applicant for membership must have held membership in the club for one full year at the time of such endorsement. Accompanying the application, the prospective member shall submit dues payment for the current year.

All applications are to be filed with the Secretary and each application is to be read to the first meeting of the club following its receipt. At the next club meeting the application will be voted upon and affirmative voted of three-quarters (3/4) of the members present and voting at that meeting shall be required to elect the applicant.

Applicants for membership who have been rejected by the club may not re-apply within six months after each rejection.
