School Districts, Charters Schools, RECs, or individuals may join NMASBO at anytime throughout the year but the membership year is not based on the date an entity or individual joins; membership will end on June 30th of each year no matter when it was applied for. The billing contact is the only individual that is allowed to renew the organizational membership. Each membership type is allotted a specific number of members under its organizational membership. Each additional person added to an organizational membership is $150. Please refer to the table below.
