Interested in becoming a TKC Member?

Thank you for your interest in becoming a TKC Member! We welcome all who are interested in becoming active, involved members! Our monthly meetings are the 4th Thursday of every month at 6:30, with the exceptions of July, August, and November, when there are no meetings. December is also an exception, as that meeting is one of the first two Thursdays, and we have a fabulous Holiday Dinner/Auction with the proceeds going toward a canine related cause.

TKC Members…

  • Support the club by participating in club activities and helping at club functions.
  • Abide by AKC & TKC rules & regulations.
  • Follow the ethics of good sportsmanship.
  • Support AKC breed standards for your breed(s).
  • Keep all club business confidential and within the club.
  • Endeavor to help promote the integrity of purebred dogs.

Process to become a TKC Member:

  • The applicant must be 18 years of age.
  • The applicant must attend 3 membership meetings prior to receiving the application, and then must attend 3 more meetings. Meetings need not be attended consecutively, but must be within a 1 year time period.
  • The completed application and a $5 non-refundable fee must be submitted by the applicant, to the Secretary.
  • The applicant’s name must be published twice in the Newsletter.
  • The application will be considered by the Board after all application requirements are met. If voted on and approved by the Board, TKC members will then vote on the applicant at the Membership Meeting following the Board vote.
  • The applicant will be notified by the Secretary of the results following the vote. If approved, membership privileges will begin after dues ($20/year) are received.

TKC does offer a Junior Membership. The process of becoming a Junior Member is the same as a regular membership, with the following exceptions:

  • Junior Members will need a parent sponsor, who does not need to be a TKC Member.
  • Junior Members only pay $5/year in dues, vs. $20/year for adult members.
