MEMBERSHIP RENEWAL/APPLICATION

For membership renewals, checks may be submitted by mail to the Membership Chairman or you can choose to use the PayPal option below

For those not currently members that are interested in membership in Nutmeg Portuguese Water Dog Club, the following is a brief explanation of the application process.

Applicants for membership should complete the 2 page Membership Application Form and send it, together with a check for initial dues, to our Membership Chairperson - as named on the form. The application must include the names of two Nutmeg members in good standing who have agreed to sponsor the applicant. If the form is submitted without the names of two sponsors, the application is not complete and will be returned to the applicant. Prospective applicants should plan to attend one or more Nutmeg functions to meet and get to know Nutmeg members who would agree to be their sponsors.

Alternatively, the applicant may complete the 2 page Membership Application Form, send it to our Membership Chairperson, and then pay online by selecting the applicable membership fee below.

Member Renewal/Application
 

Excerpt from the Nutmeg By-Laws: The applicant’s name(s) and address together with the sponsors’ names shall be listed in the meeting notice for the first meeting immediately after receipt of the completed application, applicable dues and initiation fee.  The applicant’s name(s) and the sponsors’ recommendations shall be read at that meeting. The applicants’ name(s) shall be included in the notice for the next meeting with the notice that the application shall be submitted for a vote by secret ballot of the Active Members in good standing present and voting at that meeting.  Membership shall be accepted by affirmative votes from not less than two-thirds (2/3) of the members present and voting by secret ballot. The Board of Directors, Membership Committee or any member in good standing can make recommendations on every application.

A “quorum” of the voting members of the Club is required at any meeting for Club “business” to be conducted including voting on applicants for membership. 

When the applicant is accepted for membership, s/he is so advised in writing. Likewise, if the applicant is declined membership, s/he is advised in writing.

The application process from receipt of completed application to vote can take as little as four months but may take longer depending on timing of the receipt of application and having the required quorum at meetings.

If you are unable to print the application available on this website please email the “contact” person noted on the website requesting an application form.
