Joining and renewing your Orienteering club membership 2017

When you join an orienteering club, you join Orienteering Victoria (OV) at the same time.  Membership is for a calendar year from January 1st; new members who join from October 1st will have their membership rolled over to the following year.

The Australian Orienteer quarterly magazine comes with your subscription. You can choose the hard copy or access to the online version. Associated Schools and Organisations receive the magazine as part of their membership. Besides the $5 taken out at the OV stage of the online application the rest of the OV membership fee comes out of the club membership fee.

Renewing members open Eventor and follow the steps below.

Login to Eventor, go to My pages: My memberships and click on the renewal link. Choose your membership options and pay online. You can now renew and pay for the memberships of other family members, living at the same address, at the same time.

The existing membership methods for adding membership will still be available and will still be needed for registering new membership.   A new family member will still need to register a personal Eventor account.

7)     Next – takes you to a summary page.  Check the details and what you have agreed to pay – if this is all correct, then ‘save’ to proceed to payment.
