Your information on the membership structure of the other organizations was
very interesting to say the least.
Using your information it seems that the AERC membership for a family
consisting of two adults and two juniors is a real bargain or the AERC
membership is very under priced.
This combo (a family of four) is $95 in the AERC, $225 in the USCTA, $130 in
the USDF and approximately $210 in the AHSA ( I do not know the exact
discipline fee so used an average)
Sure looks like we need to up the fees by at least 20% to be on a par! And
think what the Canadians would have to pay then!!!
Seems like we are getting a real bargain with our present rates. Do you
really want to go before the BoD and ask for the increase??

>Dressage Federation and AHSA annual membership fees. Here's what I found:
>Full member $75
>Family member - $50 each person*
>Junior member - $50
>Canada, add $22; Mexico, add $95; others, add $80 to the above fees.
>*Family member: Up to 4 persons with the same address but must also
>at least one full or life member to qualify. (I think life fee was $1000.)
>USCTA was the only group that had foreign rates posted.
>one year participating member - $40
>junior - $25
>horse for life - $50
>change of horse's ownership or name - $10
>Senior member - $40
>PLUS: for senior members, $45 to participate in all disciplines or fees
>from $10 to $35 for individual disciplines.
>Junior member - $35 (can participate in all disciplines)
