Join Us

The IWCC fiscal year runs from January 1 to December 31. Regardless of the date you join, new members shall be exempt from paying their membership dues for the remainder of that calendar year. Any new member joining after October 31 shall automatically have their year of free membership deferred to the start of the following year.

Membership type is determined by the applicant’s country of residence. New Canadian and USA applicants become Associate Members for the first three consecutive years. After three years, Canadian members then become Regular Members gaining voting rights and the right to run for a position on the club’s Board of Directors and/or serve on a committee. American Regular members gain voting rights, but cannot run for a position on the club’s Board of Directors and/or serve on a committee. Persons residing outside Canada and the USA become non-voting Foreign Members. Regardless of their country of origin, persons aged 10 to 17 become Junior Members, at a fee of $10 (first year free, as described above). Junior members enjoy membership privileges, except that they are not eligible to vote, hold office, or serve on a committee.

By joining the IWCC, applicants agree to abide by the Constitution, the Bylaws, the Code of Ethics, and the Canadian Kennel Club rules, and assert their commitment to protecting and promoting the Irish Wolfhound breed, for as long as they are IWCC members.
