Membership Requirements

Thank you for your interest in joining our All Breed Club. Found in 1909. The Lehigh Valley Kennel Club is a very community active club, whose objects have been:
    1. To do all in its power to protect and advance pure bred dogs and to encourage sportsmanlike competition at dogs shows, obedience trial and all AKC performance events.
    2. To further the advancement of all breeds of pure bred dogs
    3. To conduct dog shows and sanctioned matches under the rules of the American Kennel Club.

                           Protocol for Election to Membership

 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 Lehigh Valley Kennel Club’s constitution, Bylaws, Code of Ethics and the rules of The American Kennel Club.

The application shall state the name, address, occupation, breed, interests, etc. It shall carry the endorsement of two members in good standing.

All applications are to be filed with the Membership Chair and each application is to be read at the first meeting of the club following its receipt.

At the next club meeting, the applicant, if in attendance, will be voted on. Affirmation votes of 2/3 of the members present are needed. At that meeting, a secret ballot vote shall be required to elect the applicant.

The newly elected member shall pay an application fee of $15.00. At this time, the member will be offered a mentor to help the new member to become involved in our club.

Meeting of the Lehigh Valley Kennel Club are held the first Thursday of every month except for July and August. In April we hold out annual Awards and Membership Appreciation Banquet and December is our Holiday Party. In addition, the Lehigh Valley Kennel Club sponsors two AKC point shows in September and December and our Bark Around the Park in May. We have public education activities, breeder referrals, our two banquets and a monthly newsletter. These activities could not continue without the cooperation of our club members.
I would personally like to invite you to participate in our club and become involved in one or more activities or events, and to have some fun with dogs!

Again, we appreciate your interest in joining the Lehigh Valley Kennel Club. I will be very glad to help you if you need any more information. I will contact you about the next monthly meeting as soon as I know the upcoming program scheduled.
