BRARA 2021 Membership
We look forward to a full year of many projects even with COVID-19. Member tools are periodically undergoing updates.
 
Thank you for your support which is vital to our success.

How can you tell if you have not paid your 2021 dues? There are two ways.

1. No logon permitted if Admin Year was 2020 or earlier.

2. On home page see message "2021 dues payable by 2021-03-31."

In either case, to resolve this, please visit our Payment Gateway to Pay 2021 Dues.
