In submitting this application for status in the NASMDA Amateur Exhibitor Program I hereby affirm that the information contained herein is true and correct. I understand that my status in the NASMDA Amateur Program and my NASMDA Amateur card are revocable. I understand that the animal(s) I will show must meet the recorded owner requirements according to the NASMDA rulebook, must have completed transfer of ownership prior to showing of any animal, and leased or co-owned (other than immediate family) are ineligible. Should the Association find that, for any reason, I am no longer eligible to compete in NASMDA approved Amateur classes, I agree to surrender said card to the Association immediately upon request. Furthermore, should I no longer be eligible for Amateur status for any reason, I will refrain from exhibiting in the corresponding classes and I agree to voluntarily surrender my NASMDA card to the Association without request. Failing to do so, I am subject to possible disciplinary action under the general rules of the Association. By signing this application, I acknowledge responsibility for knowledge of NASMDA rules regarding the Amateur program.
