Membership Forms

There are three types of Club membership open to anyone 18 years of age and older who is in good standing with The American Kennel Club.

  • Household – Two adult members residing in the same household, each eligible to vote and hold office who subscribes to the purposes of this Club
  • Regular (Individual) – enjoys all Club privileges including the right to vote and hold office
  • Associate/Newsletter – Entitled to all Club privileges except voting and holding office (offered to individuals who live outside of the area; also offered to individuals who live in the area but are not active).
  • A type of club affiliation, Junior, is open to children under 18 years of age; it is a non-voting, non-office holding affiliation which may be converted to regular membership at age 18.

 A prospective member must attend at least two (2) Club meetings before applying for 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 constitution and by-laws and Code of Ethics of the Three Rivers Bernese Mountain Dog Club and the constitution, bylaws and the rules of The American Kennel Club. Your application must be endorsed by two (2) Club members who are in good standing (i.e., you will need two TRBMDC members to sponsor your application). You will need to submit your dues payment for the current year along with your completed application. Send your application to the Club Secretary. Each application is read at the first meeting of the Club following its receipt. At the next Club meeting the application will be voted upon and affirmative votes of 2/3 of the members present and voting by secret ballot at that meeting shall be required to elect the applicant. If you are interested in membership, please attend a Club meeting and contact our Membership Chair.
