Communication between AKC and its affiliated clubs is crucial to the success of your club's business, planning/approving its events, and keeping each other informed of "breaking news" as well as legislative initiatives in the sport of purebred dogs. The fastest, most efficient and cost-saving way to accomplish this goal is to have up-to-date email addresses for club officers, especially the President and Corresponding Secretary, as well as all club members for larger outreach on important issues to purebred dog owners.
To date, more than 2,400 AKC clubs — that's nearly 50% of all clubs — are enjoying the ease of submitting their annual membership lists (as required in the Rules) by using the Club Membership List Upload Tool on the AKC's website. We'd like to thank those proactive clubs that have already submitted their forms to us through the use of the Club Membership List Upload Tool
and request the remainder of clubs that have not yet done so to consider it as a cost saving measure.
AKC's Board of Directors has extended the deadline to submit membership lists using the Club Membership List Upload Tool to July 1, 2013. After the deadline, a $50 processing fee will be charged to clubs for membership lists not submitted via the Club Membership List Upload Tool.
As you know, your club's membership list will only be used by AKC to conduct AKC business relating to events, club relations, legislation, and other outreach by AKC to its affiliated club members. The names and email addresses on the list will not be provided to government agencies or sold to third parties.
After submission of the club's membership list using the Club Membership List Upload Tool
, your club officers will receive an email from the AKC confirming the submission of the list.
Clubs can submit their membership information by uploading either a Microsoft Excel or CSV formatted file here
or navigating to http://www.akc.org/club_membership/
and using the access code provided by AKC in an email dated December 27, 2012.
If a club finds that it is unable to submit an electronic membership list and needs assistance, needs to know its access code or has any other questions please contact us at ClubMemberLists@akc.org
