15 Mar USDBF Update to Membership Deadlines
This week, the USDBF Board of Directors has considered comments given through email and social media. In response, we have decided to make the following changes to the USDBF Membership structure for this year:
Team USA Athletes – the late fee is waived for registrations received after March 15, but all athletes who are trying out for the team must be paid members before their first clinic, camp, or time trial. This is a two-step process. First, register and pay your membership dues. Second, use the Events feature on the USDBF website at https://www.usdbf.org/events/, to RSVP for all divisions that you are trying out for, so that coaches have your information.
Club Crew participants – the late fee is waived for registrations received after March 15, so that club crew participants will be able to wait until further direction from the Competition and Technical Committee, regarding CCNC, prior to registering. The CTC will establish a new deadline, which will be communicated through an updated Bulletin and through social media. Upon this deadline, profile changes will be locked, preventing changes to primary club designation until after CCNC is complete.
We thank the community for their viewpoints and commentary. The rollout of the membership program has been successful, but the challenges of this year have made some aspects difficult. We look forward to seeing everyone on the water again.
