We believe that all owners and those who love the breed in our region should be connected, and invite you to join IWAC.

IWAC has four types of membership; Regular, Household, and Associate for those over 18 years of
age, and a Junior membership for those who are under 18.  Other membership requirements are:


  • If you compete, you need to be in good standing with the American Kennel Club (AKC),

  • If you are a member of the Irish Wolfhound Club of America (IWCA), you need to be in good standing, 

  • You need to subscribe to the purposes of IWAC (see the home page), and

  • You need to abide by the bylaws.

Membership runs from January 1 through December 31 of each year, and is unrestricted as to where you live,
but our primary purpose is to be representative of the owners and breeders in North Carolina, South Carolina,
Virginia, and West Virginia.

If you are a new member, you will initially need to apply as an Associate Member.  This gives us the chance to
get to know you.  After two years, Associate Members may apply for Regular or Household membership.  When
you apply for Associate or Junior membership, you do not need a member recommendation.  For a Regular

membership, you will need the names and signatures of two IWAC members.

The full text of IWAC Membership rules can be found in Article II of the bylaws (under the "Home" tab).  Please complete our Membership Application and mail it to our Treasurer, Lori Simonelli (161 Old Denver Road, Anderson, SC, 29625)  The types of membership are outlined below:
