All competitors and judges participating in VYUFDA trials must be VYUFDA members.
There is a category of membership for interstate competitors and judges participating in trials in Victoria. Interstate people have the option of Full or Interstate membership.
Interstate competitors may apply to the Treasurer for Interstate Membership by providing proof of membership with their home Association and payment of $30. The term of membership is from 1st January to 31st of December each year.
An Interstate Member number will be issued and this process must be completed prior to entries being lodged.
Competitors who are full members of either NSWYDA or SAYDA will not be charged a fee, BUT they must apply for Interstate membership and upon acceptance will be issued a competition number. Being a member of NSWYDA and SAYDA does not mean you will have your membership application accepted by the VYUFDA.
Interstate members will have the same constitutional rights as Supporting members and will not be eligible for awards such as High Point Dog of the Year.
Convenors appointing interstate judges will be required to pay the subscription, [if not from NSW or SA], and arrange for the judge concerned to complete the membership form.

If you pay your membership through bank transfer, please send the Treasurer an email advising that you have paid and either post a hard copy or email a scanned copy of your signed membership form. You will not be considered a financial member until the Treasurer has received notification of direct credit and your membership/code of conduct form.
If you would like your membership number posted to you, please supply a stamped, self addressed envelope to the Treasurer.
