Some General Information About Membership
Whether you are experienced or just beginning in the dog world, we welcome all dog lovers to our meetings and encourage applications for membership.
Membership applications will be accepted from anyone in good standing with the American Kennel Club and who subscribes to the purpose of this club.
There are several different types of membership:
Individual Members:Individual membership is for a single member aged 18 years or older. These members enjoy all club privileges including voting rights and holding an office of the club.
Household (Dual) Members: A household membership is for up to two persons who are both 18 years or older and who live at the same residence. Both members enjoy all club privileges including voting rights and holding an office of the club. Children under the age of 18 must adopt junior memberships. Adult dependents (18 or over) may opt for either the individual or associate membership.
Junior Members: Any person who has not attained 18 years of age may apply for Junior membership and enjoy all club privileges, except voting rights and holding an office of the club. At age 18, a Junior membership may automatically convert to an individual membership. See the membership applicaton form for more details.
Associate Member: This type of membership is the same as that for Individual membership, with the exception that this membership type does not include voting rights and the member may not be an officer of the club. Associate membership is available to non-Anne Arundel County residents and to AAC residents who choose to be inactive.
