Membership Information


There are Three Types of Membership:

  • Regular Membership Regular membership is open to all persons 18 years of age or older. A regular member shall be entitled to all privileges of the Club including the right to vote and hold office. While membership is to be unrestricted as to residence, the Club’s primary purpose is to be representative of the breeders and exhibitors in its immediate area.
  • Junior Membership Junior Membership shall be open to persons between the ages of 10 and 17 years of age. Junior members shall be entitled to all privileges of the Club except those of voting and holding office or a board position. Junior members may automatically convert to regular membership upon reaching their 18th birthday.
  • Associate Membership Associate Membership shall be offered to persons who live outside of the club’s area or to persons who reside in the club’s area but who are not active. Associate members are entitled to all privileges of the club except voting or office holding. Associate members are not computed in determining a quorum.


Membership Process:

Each new member applicant will provide a completed APPLICATION, and will have two club sponsors.  If you do not have a sponsor, the club will assign two sponsors for you.  Sponsors will act as club “mentors” for applicants.  At the first business meeting, after the application and sponsors forms are received, a reading will be made to introduce the applicant to the membership.  Applicant MUST be present.   At the next business meeting, a second reading will take place as a refresher, and a vote will be taken.  Applicant MUST be present.  Applicant will be approved for membership if approved by 2/3 vote of the quorum present when the vote is taken.

Please provide your completed application, along with your check for $25 (to be applied to dues for the current year, and balance, if any, as application fee), payable to Greenville Kennel Club,  to our GKC Membership Chairman – Beverly Crosby (contact info:  This email address is being protected from spambots.
