All referees with International or National accreditation are required to be members of the AVRC. Membership is on a calendar year basis. The membership fee is $30 and enables the AVRC to perform its functions (outlined in the AVRC Commission Statement). Membership also entitles referees to receive per diems associated with refereeing at national events, be included on the annual Active National Referee Return to the FIVB (referees must be included in the return for at least 3 of the past 5 years to be eligible to attend an FIVB International Referee Candidate Course) and be eligible to accompany Australian teams overseas to international Volleyball tournaments as the Australian representative referee. Also, in any year when a member's accreditation to the NOAS expires renewal is paid on their behalf from their membership fee (permitted that membership has been paid in that year).
