2018-2019 BCBA Membership Renewal

2018-2019 BCBA Membership Renewal
    If you currently have a BCBA courthouse access card that allows you into the courthouse via the card reader, the courthouse access card fee will assure that your card remains active. Your current courthouse access card becomes inactive on 8/31/2018. For security reasons, you will NOT be allowed to bypass security with an expired BCBA courthouse access card. Don't get stuck waiting in line at the courthouse. Keep your courthouse access card active! If you have an old BCBA courthouse access card or if this is your first BCBA courthouse access card, you will need to have your photo taken and your new courthouse access card printed at the Viera courthouse. Remember! A valid BCBA courthouse access card must be read by the card reader at the courthouse.
