Membership Fee Reduction for all First Time Junior Members

If you meet the following criteria your membership fee has been reduced to $15 for the period 1 April 2017 to 30 June 2017. 
  1. Is this the first time you have been a member of PDANZ
  2. Are you a junior member (ie under 18 years of age)
  3. Are you joining PDANZ for the competition season running from 1 July 2016 to 30 June 2017

If you meet all of these criteria then our normal membership fee for a junior of $30 has been reduced to $15.

 

Membership Number:

Your Membership Number is the four digit number to the right of your name on your Membership Card. To avoid confusion, we ask you to include this number on the form. However, for new members, and existing members who have lost their card, the Online Membership Form provides tick boxes which generate a temporary identification number to link the form with the payment.

New Members - Date of Birth:

New members under 21 years of age are asked to send a scan or photocopy of either their Birth Certificate or Passport. (Do not send original documents.)
These may be sent as an email attachment to: membership.pipinganddancing@xtra.co.nz

Membership Card:

Your Membership Card will be mailed to the address you have given within 14 days of the Association receiving both membership form and payment. Please keep it safely for the whole year, and produce it at any competition you enter.
