BCCA Membership Renewals Important Note

At the May Board Meeting two changes were made to the standing rules regarding Membership renewals:

  1. Motion to amend Standing Rule 4.3.1 as follows, “4.3.1. Notices will be sent to current members via email by July 1st of each year.” passed without dissension. (Means)
  2. Motion to amend Standing Rule 4.3.2 (Delinquent Dues), by striking “July 1” from the first sentence and replacing it with “August 1”. If adopted, the amended standing rule would read as follows, “4.3.2 Delinquent Dues. If dues are paid after August 1, but on or before August 31, a penalty of $5 shall be assessed. The treasurer or designee will send an email notice to delinquent members by August 15th. If dues remain unpaid after August 31, the membership is terminated and an application for a new membership may be submitted.” passed without dissension. (Ritter)

The difference is: instead of sending membership renewals on June 1st, they will now be sent on July 1st. The reasoning behind this is that at the beginning of July, a new treasurer assumes office. It does not make sense to send renewal forms to the previous treasurer who would then have to forward them to the new treasurer. Neither should they be sent to the new treasurer prior to his/her taking office.

Therefore, you will receive your membership renewal form on July 1st. Your dues are to be paid by August 1st. If paid after August 1st but on or before August 31st, a $5 penalty shall be added. If your dues are unpaid after August 31st, membership will be terminated. 

Notice to Breeders

At the April Board Meeting, the following guidelines were approved for the Breeder Listing on the BCCA website. This listing will replace the breeder business cards in order to make the page easier to read. If you want to be listed on the BCCA website, there will be a line on the Membership Renewal Form which will allow you to enroll for a yearly fee of $25. All the information needed is already in our database; however, if you have a website, you will need to enter the address in the space provided on the Membership Renewal Form.

Guidelines for the BCCA Breeder Listing Program

The Corresponding Secretary shall maintain the breeder listing that will be published on the BCCA Website.

The list will be maintained on a yearly basis from July 1 to June 30, to coincide with the BCCA fiscal year.

Members may enroll in the Breeder Listing program for a $25 fee using the membership renewal form.

Members may also sign up any time during the year by notifying the corresponding secretary and submitting the fee; the fee will not be pro-rated.

Information to be listed on the BCCA website is limited to the following:

  • Kennel Name
  • Owner Name
