Endurance Horse Registration – Annual or Lifetime
AERA Endurance Horse Registration fees.
At the November AERA meeting, the future of the Endurance Horse Registration fee was considered and discussed. The AERA considered the fee in the context of the following items that are on AERA’s short to mid-term horizon:
1) AeraSpace (like all software) will require ongoing maintenance and enhancements;
2) The AERA is developing an electronic timing system that will interface with AeraSpace. The intention is to provide each State with a complete hardware package designed for use at all events in Australia. The first trials should be conducted in the first quarter of 2014 with the intention of having it fully tested and operational for the 2014 TQ;
3) The AERA has committed to funding special celebration activities at our 50th Anniversary Tom Quilty in 2015.
When considering the above issues and the associated costs, it was decided to continue with the Endurance Horse Registration fee and increase it for the first time since its inception to ensure that the above projects could be adequately funded. Annual registrations rose from $11 to $25 and Lifetime from $55 to $60.
The decision to increase the annual fee significantly, whilst only marginally increasing the lifetime fee, was twofold;
(a) to encourage members to purchase lifetime registration thus reducing secretarial workloads in the long run; and
(b) to ensure that those members who turn over a large number of horses on a regular basis contribute accordingly.
The increased fees were conveyed in writing to all State SMC Secretaries shortly after the meeting. State delegates are required to pass information on all matters discussed to their own State SMC’s in a format and timeframe as agreed with their State SMC.
