Northern Ohio Dressage Association
       USDF GMO No. 211

The USDF has approximately 130 affiliated dressage clubs, or Group Member Organizations (GMOs), across the United States and Canada. These clubs submit their membership rosters to the USDF office. By joining your local GMO, you automatically become a group member (GM) of USDF.   To learn more about how your group membership contributes to your GMOs voting strength at the Board of Governors meeting, click here.

USDF Group Member Membership Cards
are mailed by USDF.  You get a USDF Group Membership Card unless you are a current USDF PM (Participating Member), or unless you are already a member of some other GMO.  You only get one card from the USDF.  Group Membership (GM) FAQs from USDF may be found at  Your USDF number will be the same whether you have a Participating Membership (PM) or a Group Membership (GM) because once you are assigned a USDF number, it does not change.  (NOTE: These GMO member cards are acceptable proof of USDF Membership at USEF-licensed/USDF-recognized shows The USEF membership card, which you must also present at recognized competitions, can also be found on the USDF web site.

NODA Membership cards
are available only if requested, because the  online membership roster on the MEMBERSHIP page of is used as verification of membership for all NODA activities.  If you would like a hardcopy NODA membership card, please contact Fran Cverna, Membership Chair, at  or 440-834-1774.
