AUSKF 2018 Spreadsheet-Based Membership Registration

For AUSKF membership registration, member federations have the choice of using the spreadsheet-based system (similar to 2017), or having their individual members use the online registration system (see 2018 membership instructions). For both methods, the annual membership drive deadline is 3/31/2018.

To use spreadsheet-based registration, we request that you carefully follow the detailed instructions in the sections below.

  • For the annual membership drive (for 2018 membership that runs from 4/1/2018 through 3/31/2019): see detailed Membership Drive Spreadsheet Registration notes below. Brief summary:
    1. Create your federation's initial spreadsheet using 2017 membership
    2. Add "4/1/2018" under "registration day" to register a member;
      enter "Y" under "college student" to indicate full time student
    3. Submit the completed password-protected spreadsheet by the annual membership drive deadline

  • To register members after the annual membership drive deadline, see supplemental registration notes below
If you have any questions, please email

Membership Drive Spreadsheet Registration

Step 1: Create your federation's initial spreadsheet

  • Use the 2018 annual form (2018_annual.xlsx), which contains 2 tabs:
    • "2017" tab: contains empty rows for entering your roster of last year's members
    • "2018" tab: contains empty rows for this year's registration (see step 2)
  • Using federation admin privileges, download the membership export file for your federation
  • In Microsoft Excel (or compatible spreadsheet application)
    • Open the export file
    • Filter on "Registration Date" between 4/1/2017 and 3/31/2018 and sort by "Dojo". Additional sorting within a dojo could include by ID Number or name.
    • Open the annual form
    • Cut and paste data for members from the export file to the annual form. Since the column order is different in the two files, this will need to be done in several pieces.
If you would like AUSKF to create your initial spreadsheet, please email

Step 2: Fill out the spreadsheet

Here are the instructions for entering your federation's registration for 2018.
  • Enter your membership data in the "2018" tab
    • For returning 2017 members as well as new members, enter ID Number, Last Name, First Name, Birthdate, Gender, Federation, and Dojo
    • leave the ID Number blank for a new member who has never received an ID Number in the past
    • Enter "4/1/2018" under "Registration Day" (column B) to register the member
    • Enter "Y" under "college student" (column G) to indicate the member is 18&over and a full time student
    • Do not try to alter the autofill section (highlighted in orange). Its formulas automatically calculate the fee for each member. The spreadsheet is protected to keep the autofill section intact. If you are pasting from another sheet, you will need to do it in two pieces, for the columns to the left and right of the autofill section.
    • If a member does not have an ID number (column C is blank), autofill will add the $10 initiation fee
  • Special notes:
    • Highlight a cell green to indicate a request to change the AUSKF database, for example a new last name or a dojo change within your federation. (Note: If someone has moved out of your federation, DO NOT provide information about that person in the "2018" tab.)
    • Rank information is omitted from this form, since it is handled by a different process.
    • Compare your spreadsheet entries against a downloaded export file (see step 1 above) and correct data as necessary, for example name spelling, date of birth, gender, etc.
    • It is especially important that the dojo name matches the official spelling and punctuation already established in the AUSKF membership database; otherwise a new dojo will be created.

Step 3: Submit the completed spreadsheet on or before the annual membership drive deadline

  • Password-protect your spreadsheet using the same password as in 2017
  • Rename the file to "fed_2018_annual.xlsx", where "fed" is the abbreviation for your federation
  • Upload the file to your federation's DropBox folder
  • Email that the spreadsheet is ready
  • Mail your membership check to Keiko Umemura, the AUSKF treasurer (who is automatically copied on emails sent to
    • Mail one federation check made payable to All United States Kendo Federation
    • See the AUSKF membership announcement letter for Umemura sensei's contact information

Supplemental Registration

For membership registration after the deadline of 4/1/2018:
  • Use the 2018 supplemental form (2018_supplemental.xlsx) and follow the instructions in step 2 above, except
    • In the "Registration Date" column, instead of "4/1/2018", use the date of your supplemental registration submission, for example "7/15/2018" for registration submitted July 15th, 2018.
    • Rename the file to "fed_2018mmdd_supplemental.xlsx", where "fed" is the abbreviation for your federation and "2018mmdd" is the submission date, for example "20180715"
    • Membership registration files will be imported into the online database between the 7th and 15th of the month following submission, provided the membership fees have been received by AUSKF.

  • Alternatively, you can let individuals register online after completing set up for your federation.

Downloading Membership Information

The instructions below assume familiarity with using admin privileges in the online membership database.
  • Using federation admin privileges, download the membership export file for your federation
    • Open the Admin menu
    • Choose "Federation List" from the "Federation admin" drop-down
    • Click on your federation name
    • Click on "Membership Export File" at the top of the page
    • Save the export file
  • The export file may then be used to create your initial membership spreadsheet, to look up AUSKF ID numbers assigned to your members, to check your menjo printing request before submitting it to AUSKF, or other usage.
    • Note: The export file includes data for past and present members of your federation. To view only those who are registered in 2018, sort according to the "Registration Date" column, which reflects the date each person registered for 2018 membership.
  • You may also use admin privileges to spot check information for individual members (users), edit or check dojo information (dojos), etc. See the help pop down pages for more information.
