Becoming a Member

Membership in the Evergreen Basenji Club is open to any person of good repute and sportsmanship, who subscribe to the EBC Bylaws and Breeder’s Code of Ethics, and are in good standing with the American Kennel Club (AKC) and/or the American Sighthound Field Association (ASFA).

Two types of membership are available:

  1. Individual: Any person whose application for membership has been approved by the Club, who has reached his 18th birthday, and supports the activities of the Club through participation or contribution.
  2. Junior: Any person prior to his 18th birthday shall be a Junior Member. Junior members who join without a parent (solo) shall be accompanied by a parental release form absolving EBC of any liability.

Annual dues are $25 for an individual membership, $13 for a solo junior, and $30 for family membership (multiple memberships residing at the same address).

Applying for membership:

Each applicant for Membership shall complete a written membership application, stating his name, address and occupation and that the applicant agrees to abide by the Constitution and Bylaws, and the rules of the American Kennel Club. Each applicant shall be sponsored by two regular members. The Sponsors will submit a written recommendation for the applicant. Accompanying the application, the prospective member shall submit dues payment for the current year. All applications are to be filed with the corresponding secretary. Each application and recommendation is to be read at the first General Meeting of the club following its receipt. At the next General Meeting, following discussion from the floor, a vote shall be taken. Affirmative votes of three fourths (3/4) of the regular members present and voting at that meeting shall be required to elect the applicant. The applicant may not attend the meeting at which voting is scheduled. Additional people, adults or juniors, residing in the same household as a member may apply for membership by submitting an application and additional Household dues, if any.
