EHOA Membership

EHOA Subscriptions

When the EHOA first started we ran hospitality at just a few major Events: Badminton, Burghley and The Festival of Eventing.  Over the years this has proved very popular with our Members and is, we believe, something that should be at all the major events, certainly those running CIC’s & CCI’s.

In the last few years the number of hospitality tents that we now host or manage has multiplied significantly. However, the work involved in providing this level of hospitality has gone beyond what we can expect from even the most dedicated volunteer to manage. Therefore we have decided to seek paid help, as we already have in the time consuming roles of Membership and PR/Website.

Since formation our subscriptions have not quite kept up with inflation; however, to cover this increase in our costs we will have to raise our annual subscriptions for the first time in 4 years as follows:-

Full Member –    £66.00
Owner/Rider –    £42.00
Joint       –         £90.00

Whilst this represents a 20% increase on the current year we still feel that this represents very good value for money, and the use of our hospitality facilities shows us that this is an area we should continue to fully support.

Finally I would like to say thank you for all your support and we very much look forward to seeing you in the hospitality tents in 2018.
