Membership Application Process


Thank you for your interest in joining our club.

The BCA has eight (8) Divisions which govern local activities throughout the entire country. All Applications for Membership are considered, accepted or rejected at the quarterly meeting of the Division in which you reside. BCA has delegated to the Divisions the authority to make all decisions for membership applicants in their respective territories. You can locate your Division HERE and find the name and address of your Divison Secretary.
All applicants for membership MUST be sponsored by a current BCA member. If you do not know a current BCA member, you are encouraged to become involved with a local bulldog club. For the name and location of a local bulldog club in your area, please click on About BCA, then Organization.  Determine which Division you reside in and click on that Division, Local Clubs.
