|How do I become
a member of the Georgia Boxer Club?
An individual must attend two membership
meetings of the Georgia Boxer Club before they are eligible to receive
an application for membership. The application can be obtained from
the Georgia Boxer Club Secretary after attending the second meeting.
This attendance requirement provides an opportunity for Club Members to
get to know the individual seeking membership and for the individual to
get to know the Club Members and understand the work involved in Georgia
Boxer Club membership.
A prospective member must complete
the membership application and be sponsored by two Georgia Boxer Club members.
The two sponsors must be from different families. The application
will ask questions concerning the prospective member's past experience
with boxers, including: frequency of whelping litters, past and present
membership in kennel clubs and other boxer clubs, recent attendance at
dog shows, and areas in which the prospective member is willing to work
to further the Boxer breed and goals of the Georgia Boxer Club. The
prospective member must read and agree to abide by the Constitution and
By-Laws and the Rules of the Georgia Boxer Club. In addition, a prospective
member must certify that they will conduct themselves in accordance with
Boxer Club Code of Ethics.
The membership application will typically
be read at two successive meeting and the membership will vote on acceptance
after the second reading. Note that the individual must have attended
two Georgia Boxer Club meetings within the six month period immediately
prior to the second reading of the application.
