Associate Membership is available to anyone on payment of the annual subscription fee.
Benefits include priority access to club events such as grooming workshops, fun days, shows, educational seminars and the Christmas party, plus at least two newsletters per year.
On top of this all members have access to the years of experience and knowledge our friendly committee have amassed between them. All committee members have owned bichons for many years, most have bred bichons on a regular basis. Some are involved in the training side of dog ownership too, so all are very approachable for help and advice.
Associate members are not entitled to vote at the Annual General Meeting.
Full Membership is available to people who have been exhibiting and/or are a recognised breeder of Bichons for a minimum of three years: Or have been an associate member and shown commitment to the SBFBA for a minimum of three years.
Full membership entitles the member to vote at the Annual General Meeting which means they have a say in the running of the Association as well as reduced entry fees at SBFBA shows and other benefits such as reduced eye testing when run by the Association and all the benefits of associate members too.
