WHAT DO YOUR MEMBERSHIP FEES PAY FOR?

All Membership fees include levies to Orienteering Australia (OA) and Orienteering Queensland (OQ) to cover costs of administration and public liability insurance policy. The insurance, currently held for $20 million, covers all members, landowners, organisers, and OQ from actions resulting from injury, loss or damage caused by negligence associated with an orienteering activity sanctioned by OQ. It does not provide insurance that covers personal injury while orienteering. Members are encouraged to consider personal accident insurance.
