Thank you for your continued patience as the National Executive evaluate options available to us in order to provide members with a membership remedy during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Following our statement made on 9th April, the National Executive have held a National Management Meeting via Skype that have allowed us to comprehensively discuss our position and thoughts surrounding our membership fees.

The National Executive will need to conduct a full review of the impact the virus has had on our association, our financial position and long-term viability as a not for profit organisation. In the meantime, it’s important that we update our members and provide a formal remedy based on this stage of the crisis. This decision may need to be reviewed down the track should restrictions still apply in 8 weeks’ time. To date, ABA have restricted archery activities for 4 weeks, which was followed by further mandatory Federal and State/Territory directives.

As of 19th April, all current financial members (and new joining members that join during the crisis) will have their membership expiry date extended by 3 months – allowing a 15 months membership time. For example, if you are due for renewal on 31st May 2020, this payment is now extended to 31st August 2020. If you have paid your membership due 31st March 2020 already, it is now due 30th June 2021. Please allow some time for the members portal to be updated and administration changes to take effect. Some members may choose to pay earlier and this action is most welcome.

This extension will remain in place until all restrictions relating to club activities Australia wide are lifted. The National Executive will release a further statement once we have this clarification and membership renewals will revert back to 12 months.

This decision is therefore subject to further review should we find that the crisis continues to affect our sporting activities. Furthermore, we understand our clubs may be financially impacted from the Covid-19 crisis and may experience some difficulties. A reminder that the National body are open to enquiries about financial assistance on a case by case situation.

Thank you again for your understanding over these unprecedented times and we thank you for your continued financial support. This helps our Association to keep running.

As advised in our original statements on 18 March & 9 April, if you have a specific membership query, please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Questions or statements on Facebook will not be addressed.
