Provisional Applicants

  • Once you have applied for membership, you will need to serve a probationary period under experienced stewards. Depending upon your experience shown in the ring, you may serve more or fewer assignments as deemed by the Board.

     
  • Review the calendar of shows, pick the ones that you think you can attend and notify the chief steward listed at their email address. Tell the chief that you are new and are volunteering as a provisional.

     
  • Please note that while serving your provisional period, you may not show a dog on the day of the show but if you use a handler, please tell us so that we do not put you in that ring for training.

  • I WILL NOT EXHIBIT DOGS AT SHOWS WHERE I AM TRAINING WITH THE MID-ATLANTIC STEWARDS. (DOGS YOU OWN CAN BE SHOWN BY A FAMILY MEMBER OR HANDLER.) IF ACCEPTED, I AGREE TO ABIDE BY THE CONSTITUTION, BY-LAWS AND STANDARDS OF THE MID-ATLANTIC STEWARDS ASSOCIATION.

Please return completed form to:
