How to Apply to the BEA:
For those who wish to join, the process is to attend 2 meetings in a row, and the second meeting an application can be turned in along with the application fee of $100. The membership will be voted on the application at the 3rd meeting, which the applicant would skip. The applicant will be notified after this meeting regarding membership approval. If the applicant is not voted in, the application fee is refunded.
We want BEA to be affordable yet functional. There is a one-time $100 application fee, $100/year membership paid every January, plus $20/month due quarterly.
