If you are already a member and want to pay your dues for the next year as many of us like to do with the fall meeting registration, visit your member profile page when you have completed your registration and re-up for 2016. If you don't do that at this time, you will be sent a membership renewal reminder at the end of your membership year.

Members must have their dues paid up to date to vote by paper ballot in the officer election which is held at the fall meeting. If you are not sure when your dues should be paid, check on your personal profile page.

The nonmember rate is $80 per person, and entitles you to get the GBA newsletter as our gift to you for the next year–we hope we will intrigue you enough to want to join our organization. 

Welcome, everyone! We are going to have a great fall conference and look forward to everyone's participation.
