Renewing Member? Click Here

If you’re not already logged in, you should be directed to a login page, and from there directly to your accounts page, where you can click on Renew, or if you’re a lapsed member, Subscribe. Otherwise, once you’re logged in go to the menu bar at the top of the page and find the Account link below your name. Make sure your Profile is up-to-date, and then the Sign-Up button will take you to PayPal. You can renew at any time, and the term is added onto the end of your existing membership. It couldn’t be easier!

To renew at the volunteer rate you must have performed an approved volunteer activity for BWA in the prior year – and must e-mail the details to our volunteers chairperson. In a sentence or two, describe the volunteer activity you performed and the e-mail address of the person we can contact to verify the volunteering. Once you have done that, you can renew immediately at the volunteer rate by clicking here.
