Should I join as a voting or a non-voting member?

It’s up to you. Voting members have the opportunity to be more active by taking on appointments to the Board of Directors and committee chairmanships as well as voting on important issues that affect the Havanese in Canada. To be a voting member, additonal criteria apply and you need to have sufficient breed knowledge to make informed decisions when necessary. Non-voting Associate members, Junior and Foreign members have many of the same benefits but with some restrictions. They can attend meetings and voice their thoughts and opinions. They have a voice but not a vote. They may participate on some committees and are entitled to listing in the on-line membership directory. As your experience and knowledge changes, you may be elligible for or wish to move to a different category of memberhsip. * All breeders are encouraged to apply for voting membership.
