Dues are late, but you can still renew your membership before the end of the year

Did you miss the August 31 deadline for paying dues for the 2018-19 membership year?

You can still renew your BHCA membership through December 31. You will need, however, to include a $10 late fee for missing the August 31 deadline.

We still want you as part of the BHCA family. And we’ve made it super easy to renew using the BHCA website. You can put your BHCA dues on a credit card. (A $3 credit-card processing fee will be charged.)

But don’t put it off any longer. After December 31, your membership in BHCA, including a subscription to the beautiful and informative Tally-Ho magazine, will officially lapse.
