How to Submit the Application:
Signature Copy: The application shall be submitted in hardcopy (or as scanned images) with signatures.
Electronic Version (optional but encouraged): As much of the application as possible should also be submitted in electronic form. However, this is not required. The Secretary (EMAIL) can make sure you have needed electronic forms and instructions, on request (or see below).
Photos: Please submit photos as color or black-and-white prints, preferably in 3×5″ or 4×6″ format. It is a good idea to write a brief description of each photo. (If you submit electronic images of the photos, see below, a hardcopy version is not required. Good quality photocopies of the photos are also acceptable.)
The application fee specified by the BTCA should accompany each application. This fee covers the cost of copying and mailing applications to the committee, and the cost of the certificates. See the Borderline for current fees. At present, fees are:
- for applications in hardcopy (or scanned) signatures and electronic format $5.00 (refundable if denied).
- for applications in hardcopy only (all materials) $5.00 (not refundable).
