We are accepting applications for Conditional Membership for 2021.  Applicants must have a Club Sponsor.   Complete the Application Form and mail to our Membership Coordinator, Nicola Gosselin.


Please READ THE REQUIREMENTS BELOW.  If you have any questions, contact our Membership Coordinator, Nicola Gosselin, at


1.    Conditional members must have a club member sponsor who has been a member in good standing for at least two years. At any time if the club's membership cap is reached, no further applications will be accepted until such times as additional membership spots open up.  Once the application is received, the conditional member's application will be reviewed by the board at the next board meeting, whereupon the applicant will receive a list of volunteer opportunities and be invited to join the Yahoo list where they can access the club policies.

2.    Conditional Members must fulfil the following requirements within twelve months from the date when Conditional Membership was granted in order to be considered for membership:

  • Earn 5 Volunteer Points by volunteering at AOC Events and helping out at the club.  The Albany Obedience Club is a volunteer group which relies on its members to keep it running!

  • Attend 4 Membership Meetings.  Attendance at meetings is important to get to know how the club works, hear announcements of upcoming events and volunteer opportunities, and meet other club members.

  • Enroll in and attend at least 2 sessions of classes.
