I want to become a youth member,but do I need to wait until January to apply because the membership is only good for the current year? Can I also register a herdname/ or a goat at that time or do I have to wait for my membership to be activated? About how long would it take after sending in the application to be a registered member? The kids will be due in April but I want to see about getting my doe reg. as NOA before then,so I can show her,and want to make sure I would get all the papers back in time. Thanks!
