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 Boulder County (or in a city which has part of its city limits within Boulder County—such as Erie) fewer than 3 years. (Adults-only; we have no activities for children.) Members may remain in the BNC for up to 5 full years plus any additional months prior to the first registration period (see Membership Dates below).

Membership Fee
The annual cost of BNC Membership is $30 per person. The cost for a couple is therefore $60. 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 registration period then you will be registered through May 31st of the following year. If you join mid-year (prior to May or after May) then you will need to renew during the next registration period.


If you are a member of a couple and both of you wish to join BNC, each of you must sign up individually. As part of the sign up process, you will be asked whether you wish to link your membership with your partner’s. If you answer yes, your memberships will be linked within a few days after joining, so that you can sign up for events either separately or together.

Please click to Sign Up so you can begin to participate in BNC activities. OR, if you are still not sure, please review Guest Registration below.
