ORRA Membership Annual Fees (including required annual volunteer hours)
Annual memberships are required for participation in most ORRA programs, with specific exceptions for First Year Atomic Juniors, Learn to Row programs, and other introductory events. Volunteer hours are mandatory (unless the "0" hours option selected)- see hour requirements and corresponding membership cost. ORRA memberships are automatically renewed on October 1 each year, and the volunteer hour commitment is reset on October 1 each year. New Members that join during the year will receive a pro-rated fee such that subsequent renewals will occur on October 1. Please notify ORRA if membership renewal is not desired.

32 volunteer hours = $275 annually
Additional Family Membership*:
0 volunteer hours = $250 annually
32 volunteer hours (per additional rower) = $100 annually

The Volunteer Hour commitment of our Members contributes significantly to the successful financial profile of the organization. Our volunteers provide their skills and energy to a wide variety of activities. ORRA tracks the volunteer hour contributions for each Member/Family, and will use this information to prorate subsequent Membership renewals. Total hours for a Family Membership shall be aggregated, using all Members of the Family. In the event that a Member cannot fully meet their annual commitment, the Membership fee for the subsequent year will be prorated to reflect their contribution in the previous year.
ORRA recognizes those volunteers that go above and beyond with a credit toward their Membership Account as follows: For each additional 32-hours of recorded volunteer time, ORRA will credit your account with an additional $250 that may be applied to any programmatic fee including coached sessions, boathouse storage, withstanding balances on your account, and team travel. The additional 32 hours must be fully met, i.e. there is no prorated adjustment or credit for volunteer hours above 32 but less than 64.
