Default Association Membership Requirements?

In order to compete, do all members of the pipe band have to individually register/join an association (for example the EUSPBA)?

For instance, I have registered as an individual because I am interested in competing solo.
Our band has registered because we want to compete as a band.
BUT, there are members of our band who only wish to compete as the band, and not in solo competitions. Are they required to register individually in addition to their band registration?

I hope this question makes sense.

Pose that question to Eastern US Pipe Band Assoc. http://euspba.org/ for an opinion. FYI, there is a Contact Us tab on the website and a Competition Rules and Regulations tab on the website. On Page 10 there is a section of Band Member Requirements. It does not state that EUSPBA membership is required of individual members. It specifies the number of pipers and drummer required to compete for placing.

Regards from Johnstown, likely see your band at Ligonier.

Good call. My question was promptly answered.
Band members are only required to register individually if competing individually.

See you at Ligonier!
