RBA Membership Terms

Membership
A. Start and Duration of Membership

Membership starts on the day payment of the membership has been received in the account of RBA.  Dues are yearly and payment is required upon signing (to activate membership) and upon renewal (by the end of the anniversary month of membership activation). RBA will bill Member for dues in advance by written invoice and payment will be due within thirty (30) days of mailing. 

Membership will last for the period as indicated in the subscription by the member.

In case payment for renewal of the membership has not been received, member’s access to the website will end one month after the due payment date.

Membership can be ended prior to the end date in cases mentioned under {C}.

B. MEMBERSHIP FEES
Membership fees will be paid by check or with credit card (U.S. Funds only).

Membership fees shall be set by the RBA Board of Directors. The RBA BOD may create different categories of membership and variable levels of membership fees.

Membership fees are non-reimbursable.

C. END OF MEMBERSHIP
The membership ends if the membership period has ended and the member has not renewed membership. In case payment for renewal of the membership has not been received, member’s access to the website will end one month after the due payment date.

In case a member deploys activities that may harm the interests of the RBA significantly, or in case a member acts in a way that in severe contradiction with RBA’s aims and nature, the RBA withholds the right to end the membership of the member involved.

Any member has the right to terminate his or her membership before the formal end of the membership period. Termination has to be sent in writing to the RBA and does not constitute any right of reimbursement of membership fees.

End of membership, either at the end of the membership period or by intermediate termination  does not constitute any right of reimbursement of membership fees.
