Membership

For information about joining the Flatcoated Retriever Society, please contact Brian Broadbent, the Membership Secretary, on 01702 545348 or email him via the link on the Contacts Page. 

 

The Application Form together with the Code of Ethics can be downloaded from this web site (or despatched to you via email or by post). Click here for the Application Form and here for the Code of Ethics.  

 

A necessary procedure in joining is the requirement for new applicants to be proposed and seconded by two existing paid up members (and entered and signed on the form).  The easiest way to obtain sponsors is to ask your breeder as most are members.  Partners can both sign if they have joint membership.  Please contact the Membership Secretary if you have any difficulty with this.

 

For the initial subscription payment, a cheque should accompany your application please. The preferred method of payment in future years is by Standing Order payable annually on 1st January (in line with 80% of the membership).  Banking arrangements made on-line are acceptable.  A Standing Order Mandate can be downloaded by clicking here. For overseas applicants, annual payments by IBAN bank transfer system are acceptable (please contact the Membership Secretary for details).

 

Commencing in 2014, new applications for membership will be considered for approval by the Committee at more regular intervals than previously (a maximum of 8 weeks).
