Why You Should Join NABA?
Persons with an interest in collecting breweriana are faced with the constant challenge of acquiring new items for their collections. We at NABA pride ourselves on offering a venue to help fulfill your goal. Members collect breweriana from more than 50 different categories, each of which is identified as part of the member profile.
Each year during the first weekend in August, we sponsor a major Convention that brings together hundreds of members to share a common interest in breweriana collecting. The annual Convention is but one opportunity for you to enhance your collection. We have Chapters located around the country that hold periodic local shows where members and non-members share an opportunity to collect, sell or trade at the time between each national Convention.
Our quarterly club journal, The Breweriana Collector, fills the void when members cannot attend the national or local gatherings. Each full color issue is packed with articles on the history of brewing as well as specific treatment of various aspects of collecting, the brewing industry today and a classified ad section to sell or buy items. Members also have access to our Membership Roster online that provides a breakdown of membership by area of specialization and location and is a valuable tool in helping members find others with common collecting interests.
Membership is only $35 for a year. A full family membership can be added for only $5. Only one copy of the BC will be sent to the address. Family members enjoy all the voting and Convention privileges of regular members, except they cannot hold elected office. We hope you and your family consider joining NABA and perhaps attending our Convention this summer. Information on the Convention is displayed on our Website.
