Thank you for your request for an application to join the Great Dane Club of America. I am enclosing an application for your use.

Per Article I, Section 2.A.2 of the Club By-Laws: "...The application shall be signed by two sponsors, not of the same household, both of whom shall be regular members in good standing of this Club for a minimum of two years. Both sponsoring members shall be personally acquainted with the applicant for a minimum of two years prior to the date of application...." Each member may sponsor four (4) applicants in a calendar year - however, a husband and wife may apply on a single application at the same time, with the same two sponsors. The By-Laws also stipulate "...the applicant agrees to abide by the Great Dane Club of America Constitution and By-Laws, the Breeder's Code of Ethics, as well as the rules of the American Kennel Club, and be cognizant of the Breeder's Color Code." Enclosed is a copy of the Breeder's Code of Ethics and the Breeder's Color Code is printed on the last page of the membership application.

After you have completed the application, including the signatures (in ink) of your two sponsors and the two sponsor letters, please return it to me at the address above (no E- mailed applications accepted) with your check payable to the GDCA for membership dues and application fee as follows:

- Single Regular Membership: Dues (U.S. & Canada) $30.00 plus Application fee: $10.00 = TOTAL: $40.00
- Couples Regular Membership Dues (U.S. & Canada) $60.00 plus Application fee $10.00 = TOTAL: $70.00
- Single Foreign Membership: Dues $45.00 plus Application fee: $10.00 = TOTAL: $55.00 (US Dollars Only)
- Couples Foreign Membership: Dues $90.00 plus Application fee: 10.00 = TOTAL $100.00 (US Dollars Only)
- Junior Members: Membership Dues $15.00 plus Application fee: $10.00 = TOTAL $25.00

Incomplete applications will not be processed, but will be returned to the applicant with a letter of explanation. When the application is complete, your check will be deposited and you will be published in the next quarterly GDCA Bulletin. The Board will act on your application at their meeting following publication and you will be advised of their action.

Sponsor Forms are included. Please return signed application, filled out sponsor forms and check for dues and application fee as noted.

If I can help you in any way, please don't hesitate to let me know.
