All BAAA memberships follow the calendar year (January 1st -December 31st). All memberships expire on December 31st, regardless of when you join, and we prorate dues on the 2nd consecutive year of membership. *
Memberships are company-wide, not individual based, so all employees become a member of BAAA once the community/company joins. It’s up to the company on how many employees they want involved with the association. Each employee can have their own account profile on our website so they can receive upcoming event emails, track education courses and receive member price on event registrations. All employees with an account will be listed in our Business Directory on our website.
*Proration example: If you were to join any time past the 1st quarter of the year, you would pay your full membership dues and your membership would expire December 31st. Come renewal in January, your invoice will be prorated for the amount of time you were a member in your first year of membership. Please call our office for further explanation.
BAAA has Signature Events which occur on an annual basis and generally fall within the same month every year. In addition, we also have networking events throughout the year that are hosted in various locations in the Tampa, Clearwater, St. Pete and Sarasota area. We host a Signature or networking event at least once a month. These events are a great opportunity to meet like-minded individuals within the industry, share ideas and create relationships. These events are open to all member employees and require you to register on our website on the event page prior to attending.
Committees are one of the most productive tools an association has to accomplish the organization’s goals and objectives. Whether you are chairing a committee or are a committee member, you face the challenge of getting involved in the work the committee was formed to accomplish. The recommendations of a committee often have a direct impact on the decisions made by the officers and the board of directors of the association.
Plus, it’s a great networking opportunity.
