Renewing your membership?

If you originally purchased your NOTSBA membership online (this feature was introduced in October 2015), you may renew online by entering in your email address in the login box in the sidebar, left. If you cannot remember your password or didn’t set one up when you paid for your membership, you can use the “Forgot Password” link to set one up. You might have a NOTSBA user name and password for various email lists, but our dues system is separate from that.

If you have been paying your membership by check or in person at a NOTSBA event but wish to switch to paying online, we ask you to register your current contact information into our new system. There is no difference in price or features; we introduced our online membership payment option in October 2015 and it doesn’t carry payment or membership history prior to that date. So if you’re already a member, but have not used our online service yet, please go through the process of fully registering your membership electronically.

Once you are entered into our online system, you will receive a dues reminder 30 days from the due date with a link to pay your renewal fee.

Again, in October 2015, NOTSBA switched to new membership maintenance software but were unable to transfer login credentials from our old system. If you joined our association prior to October 2015, and wish to renew your membership online, you will be asked to fully register in our new system when you pay for your renewal below.

Use the online form below OR print and mail in a NOTSBA Membership Application Form with your check to P O Box 160038, Nashville, Tennessee, 37216. If you renew online, you’ll receive an expiration notice 30 days prior to your renewal deadline.

Individual | One Year Membership Renewal = $10
Individual | Two Year Membership Renewal = $18
Family | One Year Membership Renewal = $15
Family | Two Year Membership Renewal = $25
