Any eligible person may become a member of the NHCBA by submitting a membership application and paying annual dues. NHCBA annual membership begins each year on July 1 and, regardless of when dues are paid, ends on June 30 of the following year.
Lifetime members do not have to pay annual dues. Lifetime members are those persons who have attained age 65 and either: (1) have been a dues-paying member of the NHCBA for thirty (30) years; or (2) whose application and induction have been approved by vote of the Board of Directors.
The NHCBA’s annual meetings are held at a date, time, and place determined by the President. At the annual meeting, officers and directors are elected and other business conducted. Notice is provided to our membership via the last known email address of each member at least ten (10) days prior to the annual meeting.
