IBA Member Dues Increase

At the November 17, 2018 IBA business meeting, a proposal to raise dues by $10.00 for each membership class was approved by the membership. The dues amounts for the 2019-2020 membership year are as follows: Active - $75.00; Associate - $45.00; Retired - $30.00, and Student $20.00. 
 
Since a significant number of our members pay their “Next Year’s Dues” on the Conference Pre-Registration form, the IBA Board of Directors wanted to get this notice out in advance of the receipt of the conference registration materials. The Conference Registration fee for this year’s conference will be $50.00 if paid prior to April 15, 2019, and $60.00 thereafter.
