To become a new member or to renew your FENB membership:
Please read the following instructions carefully as we transition into the new Membership System.
1) Go to the following website: Membership 2021-2022
2) There, you can click on the “Join / Renew Fencing-Escrime NB Membership,” where you will be prompted to enter your email and password.
a) If this is your first time accessing this system (it is new as of Sept. 2019), but you have registered with FENB in the past, please click “Reset password” and enter the same email you used for registration in the previous years. The email address is how the new system links up to your old CFF# and associated information. After confirming your account, you should be able to continue the registration process.
Note: if you don’t link up your account with the previous email address, you will be issued a new CFF#. To go back to your old one, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org immediately. If you want to use a different email address for your account than one you have previously used, I recommend registering with the old one first and then changing it once registration is finished.
b) If you have never registered with FENB (or the CFF) before, then you should click on “Create an account” and be able to continue with the registration process.
3) After you have entered the information of the person you wish to register you will be asked to choose you membership category:
– If you are fencing at a club but are not sure whether you will compete in provincial events such as tournaments and training camps, you may wish to register as a Recreation Fencing Member. You can upgrade to Fencing Member at any time later in the season.
– All fencers interested in participating in provincial events such as tournaments and training camps should register as Fencing Members.
– People who will not be directly fencing but are still involved should register for the Associate Membership.
The CFF-specific levies listed below the membership categories (Referee, Armoury, Secretariat, Veteran, and Coach) are aimed at participation at the national level and are not required for FENB membership.
4) When you have finished registering you will receive an email with your CFF#. If you are a returning member please check to make sure your number is correct. If it is not, please contact email@example.com immediately.
