Membership FAQ

Membership

What are the benefits of becoming an EWA member?
Visit the Member Benefits page or download the One Sport, One Membership Brochure for a full summary of the benefits of EWA Membership.

Which membership category should I choose?
Whether you are a highly competitive rider, a recreational rider, a coach, a breeder, or a club, EWA has a membership category for you. Please read the One Sport, One Membership Brochure to determine which membership category is best for you. Alternatively you can call the EWA office on (08) 9296 1200 and a staff member will help you determine which membership would suit your requirements.

How much does EWA membership cost?
Please refer to the Membership Fees section of the 2017 Fee Schedule page for membership prices.

How do I join?
You can join online or complete a Membership Form and email, post or fax it to the EWA office.

Can I pay for my membership in instalments?
EWA are pleased to offer our monthly payment plan again for 2017. Please note that the monthly payment plan is not available if you join or renew online. You must submit the 2017 Membership Form if you wish to pay your membership off in monthly instalments.

How long will it take for my membership to be processed?
If you have joined online, your membership will be current immediately upon payment. If you have completed a Membership Form we ask that you allow at least two weeks for your membership to be finalised. During the peak period (December - March) your application may take a little longer.

Can I compete before my membership is processed?
Providing the office has received your membership form and correct payment you are able to compete. It's best to check with the office to make sure that your membership form has been received prior to competing. You may need to complete a statutory declaration at the event stating that your paperwork is at the EWA office being processed.

What does EWA membership insurance cover?
EWA members receive Personal Accident Cover (for injuries you sustain) and Public and Product Liability Cover (for third party property damage and personal injury) under the Gow Gates EA Membership Structure. For more information please visit the Gow Gates - What is Covered? page.

When is my insurance effective?
The insurance is effective at the point EWA confirms your membership details and payment.
