Membership Return Information

Membership card processing is well underway ... to Club Secretaries/Membership Coordinator please ensure the PCAV Membership Summary Remittance Form is completed.  There are two tabs in the excel spreadsheet, the PCAV Membership Summary Remittance Form needs to be sent, the calculation sheet is there for to help you work out what needs to be paid.  We are happy to recieve both sheets but we definitely need the PCAV Membership Summary Remittance Sheet as it lets Vicki know how to bill you!  For assistance or help please contact Vicki on 03 8685 8925 or by email  

If you submitted your Membership Return a little while back but still don't have cards it may be 
because we can't bill you due to lack of information.

Club Administration


Changes to the Associations Incorporations Act

In the second half of this year, the Associations Incorporation Act 1981 will be repealed and a new Associations Incorporation Reform Act will come into effect.  Information relating to changes can be found on the Consumer Affairs website.  As more information comes to hand we will endeavour to ensure that Clubs are made aware of the changes and implement them as required.

Educational seminars are planned to be conducted so we will keep you posted on these as they become available.  

Other good sites to have a look at regarding changes to the Associations Incorporations Act are:

National Championships 2013 - Western Australia

The Pony Club Australia National Championships will be hosted by Pony Club Western Australia from 26th September - 2nd October 2013. The Championships will be held at the WA State Equestrian Centre at Brigadoon with all events being held on site.

When WA hosted the Championships in 2005 the horses were transported by a commercial carrier and the riders went by plane. PCAV State Council is in the very early stages of planning and will post more information as it comes to hand.  Taking part in the Championships will be an expensive exercise but the experience gained will be immeasurable. 

Riders who would like to be considered for selection for the Victorian Team should start recording their performances on the performance records designed for each discipline.  It is important that each rider collect the information set out on the individual discipline record sheets so Selectors can compare performances. 


NMG Teams are selected via the squad selection weekend and Team selection weekend.
