If you haven't joined yet, you can still become a VADA/Nova Member. Membership runs from December 1, 2020 to November 30, 2021 which parallels the USDF year.

An individual membership is $55. Additional family members may join for just $25.

For those who paid their 2020 memberships on or before June 10, 2020, we want to remind you that the VADA/Nova Board voted in 2020 to extend your membership through the end of 2021. That means that you don’t have to pay anything to renew your membership – we have simply rolled it over through 2021. VADA/Nova will cover your annual dues to the Virginia Dressage Association (VADA) and your GMO membership to the US Dressage Federation (USDF). If you aren’t sure whether or not you are in the rollover group, please contact our Membership office before processing a payment.

Don't miss out on all the activities we are planning for 2021!   If you have any questions you may contact our Membership Chair at

Here is the Membership form for 2021.

VADA/Nova Needs YOU

It takes a lot of effort to keep the ball rolling so that there are plenty of shows and activities for all of us to enjoy. None of this is possible without the support of our membership.

We need volunteers to make shows and other events happen. You can read about our Volunteer Program and all the rewards of volunteering on this website. Also check out the recent changes to the Volunteer "Bucks" program.
