Joining NEBS is very simple, with two basic membership options.
1) An NEBS Membership for a single person is a Primary Membership, and costs $35 a year. The Benefits
page explains the benefits of being a Member.
2) A Primary member may add additional Secondary Members to their account for only $5 per year for each secondary member. These memberships may be used for another: families, friends, teams, or companies. This structure of primary/secondary memberships replaces the old NEBS Family Membership
which was restricted to only two people.
The new system allows for up to 50 secondary members per primary member. If you need more than that, contact us.
A secondary member is a full NEBS member, with voting privileges, the ability to sign up for members-only events, access to the members only areas of the web site, etc. The only thing the secondary member does not receive is the National Barbecue News publication. If you want someone to receive that, they need to be signed up as a primary member themselves.
Secondary memberships are tied to the primary member's status. If the primary member allows their membership to expire, the secondary memberships expire as well.
