2023 NMBN Dues

NMBN Dues:  

There are 4 separate dues that need to be paid to be in good standing:

If you are joining a club and wish to participate in tournaments, your club will collect and pay your respective dues within your club, then forward your state dues and required waiver to the Treasurer.  If you want to join the state level club, the At Large, you will pay your Bass Nation dues and state dues through the President or Treasurer.
