We welcome all who choose to own,
love and care for Golden Retrievers – with interests ranging from pet
companionship to responsible breeding, training and competition – and who share
our regard and concern for this wonderful breed. If you own or plan to own a Golden and are
interested in learning more about caring for, training, showing or just plain
enjoying your dog, we invite you to consider joining our club.
The Golden Retriever Club of
Central New York, Inc. is dedicated to promoting responsible ownership and
breeding of Golden Retrievers. Founded
in 1981 and incorporated in 1983, our aim is to protect and advance the
interests of the breed. We enjoy and
encourage sportsmanlike competition at dog shows and canine performance
events. We are licensed by the American
Kennel Club and are a member club of the Golden Retriever Club of America.
Our membership is from throughout
the region and includes first time owners as well as experienced handlers,
trainers and breeders. Club activities include: Regular meetings with
frequent educational programs, Club sponsored shows & matches, special
interest training seminars, field training days, health clinics and an annual
banquet. All members receive our
bi-monthly newsletter, Golden Tales. We are also proud to endorse and support the
work of Golden Retriever Rescue of Central NY, Inc., and independent full
service rescue and adoption program serving our region.
Privileges – Options – Dues
Recognizing varying levels of desire
or ability to participate in the Club’s many activities, we offer membership
option. All memberships receive basic
club privileges: Participation in all meetings and events, Subscription to
Golden Tales, Club directory listing, assisting in club activities and
eligibility for Club awards. Note: dues are half the cost after July 1st.
($25) & Household ($30)
Individual (1 person) and
Household (2 persons) applicants are elected to membership by other
members. After receipt, your application
will be read at the next club meeting, which you must attend. At the second meeting, with you again
present, members will vote on acceptance.
In addition to basic membership privileges summarized above, Individual
& Household members may vote and hold elected club office. If you plan on attending meetings and
participating in club activities, one of these options would likely be
preferable. Breeders who anticipate
requesting referrals through the Club’s Puppy Referral Program should
participate at this level.
Associate applicants are
automatically accepted, needing neither to be elected nor meeting
attendance. Associate members may not
vote and are not counted for meeting quorum purposes. If you wish to receive the newsletter and
participate only occasionally in meetings /events, this may be for you.
