We are still working on getting a new bank account to allow for paying online using PayPal. U.S. banking laws are making it increasingly difficult for small, non-profit organizations like our club to create such accounts. In the meantime, please join or renew by mailing a check or money order.
To pay by check (U.S. funds only), you must make the check out to Susan Kretchko but put ASC on the memo. If the check is written to ASC and not to Sue, then it will be returned and that will delay your order.
Single membership is for one person, $30/year for U.S. or non-U.S. members
Bands can only be ordered with your new or renewed membership, or separately if you are already a member for the band year you are ordering. Bands that are pre-ordered before the first of the year are sent out the first week in December. Sorry, no special requests for letters or range of numbers. No express shipping, please plan ahead.
Membership benefits include a copy of the ASC Constitution and Bylaws, plus four newsletters a year (or as published.) Membership information is private and not available to non-members. Members who have not paid their ASC dues by May 1st will not be eligible to exhibit in ASC sanctioned shows that year.
Bands can only be ordered with your new or renewed membership, or separately if you are already a member for the band year you are ordering.
Bands ordered under a dual membership will register those birds under both names in ASC records. To show birds and accumulate points under separate names, couples or family members should purchase separate single memberships.
Preordered bands will be shipped after November 1st and before the end of December.
Band prices do not include shipping and handling. US residents, please add $5.00 per order. Non-U.S. residents please add $15.00 per order for shipping. For non-U.S., be sure to include country and all postal codes. All prices in U.S. dollars, send check or money order, no cash.
Please be accurate on band order and the fee amount enclosed, any discrepancies, may extend the process and delivery timeframe.
A bird must wear a closed ASC band that was issued to its exhibitor to be eligible for ASC awards and points at sanctioned shows. That exhibitor must also be a current ASC member for the year of the show, regardless of the year of the band.
American Singer is a copyrighted name and only birds bred to the standards and banded with closed, registered American Singer bands can legally be called American Singers.
