In an effort to be kinder to the environment, the CHJA no longer issues and mails membership cards as proof that you are an active member. The Show Secretaries check membership status online.
The CHJA processes membership applications daily, but you may not find your name online with an active status if, for example, you joined at the show or you mailed an application very close to the show you are attending.
In that case, you may use your PayPal receipt as proof of your membership.
2. Obtain a CHJA Membership Affidavit from the Show Secretary at any CHJA Recognized show. Complete the affidavit attesting to the fact that you are an active member. Complete it and give it to the Show Secretary with the $5.00 Fee.
