Life Membership

Life membership is awarded to those BHCA members who have been voting members for at least 25 cumulative years, are voting members at the time of nomination, are at least 55 years of age, have made an outstanding contribution of service to BHCA as an officer, board member, and/or committee person, and who through participation in a variety of activities have made a significant positive contribution towards promoting the perfection of the natural qualities of Purebred Basset Hounds.

The Life Membership committee selects the nominees and the Board then makes the final selection each year.  New Life Members are announced and honored at the Club's Annual Meeting & Dinner.
