Join CPA - Member Discounts

Member Discounts

The Chesapeake Paddlers Association, Inc has been working with retailers and outdoor specialists in the area to bring to you a special members benefits program.

Our club works with many retailers and great outdoor specialists throughout the year to hold special events. Sometimes we provide assistance at their demo days, either on the water as safety boaters or by talking with attendees about the benefits of kayaking and being a member of a kayaking club. And as a club we offer a venue for new owners of kayaks to come to meet already experienced kayakers; to learn the sport in social setting; to offer instruction in safety; and to share our love of the sport.

In return some retailers and outfitters provide CPA members with discounts and benefits. To take advantage of these benefits, show your CPA Memerbership Card at participating retailers and outdoor specialists.

We encourage members to sign up as club members or renew for multiple years. Bring this program as well as the other benefits offered by the CPA to you is costly.Joining or renewing for multiple years keeps your membership active without interruptions for a longer time, and keeps the overhead costs for our club down. We want to continue to offer you benefits as a CPA member, please help us do so.
