It has been over a decade since the United States Eventing Association (USEA) last raised the cost of a competing membership but that hasn’t stopped the Association from adding more benefits than most realize during that time. Leading up to the August meeting of the USEA Board of Governors meeting the Board reviewed all the various services offered by the USEA to the membership.
“The USEA has worked hard to contain member costs while at the same time raised the number of services provided by the Association substantially over the previous decade” said USEA President Carol Kozlowski. “A cost to service analysis was conducted and comparable memberships with other equestrian Associations were also reviewed. As a member of the USEA for 40 years I can honestly say we get a tremendous amount for each one of our membership dollars.”
In the last 10 years the USEA has added the following benefits for members:
In the coming year the Association will add even more benefits to our members. The following are currently in development:
When the USEA membership renewal for 2019 opens in October the cost of a Full Competing Membership will be $95, Junior and Collegiate Memberships will be $70, and a Supporting Membership will be $50. The cost of a Life Membership remains at $1500.
The USEA is continually working to best represent its 13,000+ members, and we want to hear from you! Contact your Area representative on the USEA Board of Governors in order to share what we can do for you.
