The BRLA membership season runs from April 1 to March 31, and we are now open for registrations for the new season. As of April 1, 2019 our annual membership fee is $85.
If you would prefer not to use our online option, you are welcome to click here to download a registration form.
After completing your membership registration, please take a few minutes to make a donation towards our programs or reserve your tickets to the Summer Sounds social event later this summer (click here to purchase).
In order to streamline your summer planning, we have grouped a number of items on this page. You'll notice the "CART" icon in the top right corner of your screen (bottom right on mobile devices) - each time you click "Add to Cart", you should see the quantity in your shopping cart change. Even if you leave this page, you'll still see your CART in the same place on your page. Once you're ready, just click on your CART, and follow the steps to complete your transaction.
If you require help with the online process after reviewing these instructions, please contact us at email@example.com for assistance.
If you have been a BRLA member within the last 2 years, please renew your membership here.
A family, for the purposes of BRLA membership, is defined as one set of parents and their children up to the age of 21 years.
If you are new to the BRLA or have not been a member for over 2 years, please join here.
Are you a local business?
We welcome any local businesses interested in supporting the BRLA to become one of our valued Corporate Sponsors. For more information or to sign up, please go to our Corporate Sponsors page.
Membership fees alone do not cover the costs of the programs run by the BRLA so we ask you to consider making a financial contribution towards our programs. We have included a few examples of the initiatives funded in each donation category, but these examples are in no way complete - if you have any questions about our donations, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
