How to Join


To become a member, applicants:

  • Must be sponsored by two SCA members in good standing who accept the responsibility of this sponsorship
  • Must have their names and addresses announced to the entire membership by being published in the SCA Bulletin prior to being accepted as members.

Once the sponsoring members have been identified, use the following form to apply for membership:

Samoyed Club of America Application for Membership (PDF)

It is HIGHLY recommended that this form be submitted to the membership chair, Diana Hauser, in electronic fashion by sending it as an email attachment.

If you would like to join, but do not know any existing members, please contact the SCA Membership Chair as listed on Contact Us page.

Once the completed application and $35 fee is submitted to the Membership Chair, the applicant will be notified that it has been received.

The applicant’s name is then published in the next Quarter’s SCA Bulletin.

After the Bulletin is received by the Members, the membership has 45 days to raise any concerns about the list of potential applicants.

After the 45 days passes, if there are no adverse comments, applicants will be sent a letter of acceptance to the SCA, a copy of the “At Your Service”, and a copy of the illustrated Standard.
