Do individuals or academic institutions need to sign up for a membership?

Individuals can continue to enjoy all of BNID's services and events without having to pay a membership fee. For some events, we may continue to encourage attendee to make a small, voluntary donation.

Academic institutions interested in membership should reach out to Nanako Tamaru, [email protected], to discuss sponsorship opportunities. Our sponsorship agreements are similar to organizational memberships, but are tailored to the needs of each individual academic institution and their students.
