Join the BNC
Membership Information
The BNC is a great way to meet people who have come to the Boulder area from all over the country, to learn more about this wonderful area, and to engage in all kinds of fun and interesting activities. Members have access to all sponsored club activities and special events. Please view the Interests page for descriptions and the Calendar for upcoming events. The BNC provides opportunities to make new friends and serves as a springboard for community integration through active participation in the organization. You are eligible to join if you have lived in the Boulder area fewer than 3 years and/or have had a significant, life-changing event. 

Membership Fee
The annual cost of BNC Membership is $20 per person. The cost for a couple is therefore $40. Membership cannot be put on hold and no pro-rated partial year fees are available. The membership fee covers necessary administrative costs and is used to subsidize the cost of special club events. There are no paid BNC administrators or staff. The BNC only accepts credit card payments (very secure); no cash or checks please.

Membership Dates
The BNC membership cycle runs from June 1st to May 31st for all members, regardless of initial sign-up date. If you join during the annual May-June registration period then you will be registered through the following May 31st. If you join mid-year (prior to May or after June) then you will need to renew during the next May-June registration period. Members may remain in the BNC for up to 5 full years plus any additional months prior to the first registration period.

Membership Status

Whether you register as an individual, couple or larger household, each member is listed individually in the BNC database and Member Directory (and as noted above the cost per member is the same regardless). The advantage to joining as a couple is that you can enter certain personal information (such as address) only once, you can pay your membership fee together, and most importantly you can register for activities as a couple rather than as two separate individuals, which is beneficial for events with finite capacity. Please also take the time to specify your Interests so that you receive the relevant notifications each month.
