SOA Event levies 2018
It has been some years since SOA levies were increased and there was no proposal to change this at the SOA AGM on 21st May 2016. Subsequent to this on 29th October 2016 a motion to substantially increase the BOF levies was passed at a BOF EGM. In response to this and to ease the burden on clubs in the face of rising costs the SOA has decided to raise the SOA levy threshold from £8 to £10. (This does not require approval by the SOA AGM). There is no change to the SOA levy rate.
The board reserves the right to propose changes to event levies or memberships at a future date, depending upon the results of this trial and any other factors which become relevant. If it becomes necessary to propose a change to the levy rate, this will be brought forward to the AGM in the usual way.
Therefore, at present, SOA Levies will only apply to events where the Senior (Discounted) Entry Fee is over £10. The rate is unchanged i.e.
- Seniors: £1.00
- Juniors: £0.40
The Junior Levy rate will apply to Students paying the same entry fee as Juniors where organisers choose to retain this entry classification.
Payment is due as soon as possible after the event, at the latest within 6 weeks.
Cheques should be made payable to the National Orienteering Centre and sent, along with the completed form, to:
