Become a Member

If you are interested in joining the Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier Club of Southern California, we have several categories of membership reflecting different levels of involvement from which you may choose. All members receive meeting and special event notices and are invited to attend all meetings, programs and special events.

REGULAR MEMBERS - are counted when determining whether a quorum exists for conducting club business, have the vote, and may hold office. Regular members are expected to attend regularly.

  • Regular - Individual membership means one person in a household seeking this level of membership. Annual dues are currently $20.
  • Regular - Dual membership means two people in the same household are seeking this level of membership. Annual dues are currently $25.
  • Regular - Mixed membership means two or more people in the same household are seeking membership, one of whom will be a Regular member; the other(s) will be an Associate. Annual dues are currently $25.

ASSOCIATE MEMBERS - are often people who cannot or do not care to attend monthly meetings but who want to stay informed of club activities. Associate members may not vote, or hold office, and their presence is not required for the quorum. Otherwise, Associates may be as involved in Club activities as they wish. Dues for Associate membership, currently $20, are per household, not per member.

To be considered for Regular Membership, whether Regular-Individual, Regular-Dual, or part of a Regular- Mixed membership, an applicant must demonstrate their interest and good intentions by attending three monthly meetings and have their membership sponsored by two regular members in good standing before filing their application which will be read at two subsequent meetings and will be voted upon by the other regular members in attendance.

To become an Associate member, a person or persons need only complete an application form and pay the appropriate dues, currently $20.

To apply for membership, please complete the Membership Application form (Regular Members complete Sections I – V as applicable; Associates complete Sections I, II, and V) attach your check for your dues payment, and return both the form and your check to Debbie Bowen, Membership Chair, 38931 Camino Buendia, Indio, CA 92203.

We look forward to working with you for the betterment of the Wheaten breed.
