A local bar organization and/or an affiliated association may apply to become an HNBA Affiliate Member and pay an annual $250.00 membership fee. If accepted, the organization, through its president or designate, will have one voting seat on the HNBA Board of Governors. Once a local bar organization becomes an HNBA Affiliate, the individual members of the organization may become HNBA members with full benefits.
