RMKC is always ready to welcome new members and new ideas!

How Can I Become a Member of the RMKC?

Each applicant for membership shall submit a completed membership application (see link below).  The application will need the signature of 2 sponsors – a Board member & a General member.  Each application is reviewed by the Board of Directors, & then presented to the General Membership.

An applicant must have attended at least one Club meeting before their application can be presented to the General Membership for a final vote.  The application will first be discussed & voted on by the Board.  If approved by the Board, at a following club meeting, the application will be voted upon by the Membership and the affirmative votes of 3/4 of the general members present and voting at the meeting is required to approve the applicant.

There are 5 types of membership options available:

Individual membership is open to all persons who are in good standing with the American Kennel Club and who subscribe to the purpose and aims of the Club. Active members shall pay Annual dues. Active members in good standing are entitled to vote at club meetings.

Household Membership. A Household Membership consists of two persons 18 years of age or older residing in the same household, each of whom shall enjoy all club privileges including one vote each on any matter presented to the club membership for consideration.

Associate membership Any active membership, upon petition to the Board of Directors, may be converted to associate membership for any year(s) in which the member will not reside in the local area. Associate members shall not be entitled to vote on any matters before the Club and will not be considered for the purpose of quorum requirements. An associate member may become an active member again upon petition by the member to the Board and approval by the Board.

Perpetual membership By unanimous vote, the Board of Directors may confer a lifetime, non-dues paying membership to any individual who has offered outstanding services to the Club or to the support of pure-bred breeding and/or showing. Perpetual members shall be entitled to all privileges of the Club.

Junior membership Open to any person 8 to 18 years of age. Entitled to all privileges of the club except voting.
