Membership Applications

Membership is available at any time throughout the year. The PCAV Membership year runs from 1st January to 31st December annually. PCAV offer pro-rata fees from the 1st July each year (commencing 2021) - a small discount and incentive to join halfway through the membership year!

 

Pony Club Association of Victoria (PCAV) requires that all members under the age of 18 have one Club Supporter (parent/guardian/carer) in attendance at all times on Rally Days. This Club Supporter is required to take out free Club Supporter Membership, which then covers them as a "volunteer" under the Club's Affiliated Insurance and also makes them eligible to vote at club General and Annual General Meetings as well as hold committee positions if they so wish. Under PCAV By-Laws, all Club Supporter Members MUST hold a current Working With Childrens Card (MUST add Melton & District Pony Club & Pony Club Association of Victoria as volunteer organisations on the card)

 

The membership year runs from 1st January to 31st December annually.  If you are already a member and renewing your membership, please ensure that enough time is allowed to process your membership application in order for your new membership card to arrive in time for the new membership year. For those out and about competing on a regular basis, you would ideally submit your renewal at least two weeks prior to our December Rally, so that your new cards can be picked up at the December Rally.

 

All new memberships and membership renewals MUST be submitted online via the  MyPonyClub website or via the Pony Club Australia Mobile App  Payment may be made via Credit/Debit Card (online) or via direct deposit, cheque or cash directly the to the club.
