DUES FREEZE FOR 2021:   January 1, 2021 is the beginning of the membership year.  RIBA has decided to put a freeze on collecting dues for the year to help those affected by COVID. All current members have been marked as paid up until Jan 1, 2022. Anyone who had already paid their 2021 dues has been credited for all of 2022. This does not affect anyone who was granted membership as part of their 2021 Beginner Bee School tuition.

RIBA will still accept voluntary payments if you wish to make them (with gratitude)
