We’re pleased to announce that NER has revised the Membership policies to show our appreciation to the volunteers who make NER events possible and to encourage more people to help out. Starting in 2012 we’re waiving the entry fee for all events for NER Members. All we ask is that members inform the ride leader or RBA of your intention to ride the event by the preceding Tuesday.
As in the past, NER Membership is only available to those who are willing to volunteer for at least one event. Volunteer duties include staffing a control, leading an event, verifying the route cue, delivering supplies, etc. While many volunteer duties preclude riding on the day of the event, volunteers can pre-ride an event up to two weeks in advance and still receive RUSA/ACP credit.
In addition to agreement to volunteer, a 2012 NER membership cost $25.
To become a Member, download and fill out the Membership Form (PDF) and mail it with a check.
In early March a form will be posted here to allow Members to let the Boston and Vermont ride leaders know if you are planning on riding an event.
Membership Fine Print: If you aren’t able to commit to volunteering on at least one event, please do not apply to become a member. The membership discount is only good for member themselves, not their spouse, children, etc. The Fleche entry fee still applies unless all team members are also NER members. Members who do not notify the ride leader or RBA on the Tuesday before an event will be asked to pay the day-of registration surcharge of $5/$10.
