This site is for registering as a Member of the Queensland Fencing Association. The different categories of membership available are Supporting Member; Junior Member; Senior Member and Coach/Official Member.

QFA Membership Fees for Senior, Junior and Coach/Official Members include a Volunteer Levy. This amount is being charged to help support some of the important functions of QFA on those occasions where there are insufficient volunteers. Members will be eligible to reclaim the Volunteer Levy amount provided they have assisted at QFA activities such as canteens at competitions, setting up for National tournaments and assisting with running large public events. Fencers in regional areas are able to reclaim the levy by assisting in their own regions throughout the year. Where fencers choose not to volunteer, the levy is retained by the region to contribute towards equipment and development needs.

Supporting Members are not eligible to participate in any activities, but will receive information about upcoming events. Supporting Members are eligible to hold volunteer positions within QFA, such as being involved on the Management Committee.
