Membership in BOGA costs $42 and will cover a calendar year. Memberships for a calendar year start in September of the previous year. This means that if you obtain your membership in October, your membership will remain active through the next year's December. If you obtain your membership in February, it's good through that December.
Some BOGA events are different from others. We'll try to keep this information current, but these are our special events' details.
Held on the second Friday in September, the BOGA Anniversary Party, often provides pizza, drinks, etc. and has additional expenses and time that go into this event. In order to cover those costs we raise the door fee for this event. This money is both used for the anniversary party and also to cover our annual expenses. For this reason, we raise the door price from the usual $3 to $10. Additionally, people who buy their annual membership during this event pay $50. That's $42 for their membership, but since they're renewing during this event we round it down to $50 instead of $52.
The BOGA Retreat is not a regular BOGA event. It is held annually, is open to both members and non-members, but has a different pricing structure due to its being held at a different location. Details of the event will be provided before each year's sign ups for the retreat.
