North American Buddhist Alliance is glad you're interested in joining!

 

We offer Member Group membership and individual membership. You need an individual profile to begin. Start with a free Visitor profile or begin with a Participant profile where you donate a few dollars a month to the greater NABA community.

Being a Visitor or a Participant gives you various capabilities to participate on the site with other Visitors, Buddhists, and Member Groups. Once you have set up a Visitor or a Participant profile, you may register your Member Group.

Member Groups pay different annual rates depending on the size of a Group.

Complete all information needed for your profile so that your Member Group appears in the Group Directory.

Pay for the annual membership fee depending on the size of your Group. The five categories range from less than 50 to over 200. The distinction is only meant to make NABA Group Membership more affordable for smaller Buddhist groups. Other benefits to Group membership are that you may submit events for the Calendar, collaborate with other NABA Member Groups directly and simultaneously with one or more Member Groups on this site’s Interactive Space, and for an additional $25, post a Featured Event on the top of the NABA website.

NABA is a network of monastic and lay groups and communities like yours. As a Buddhist association, we support Buddhist teachings, practices, and communities across North America. NABA membership is meant to be all groups dedicated to the teachings and practices of the Buddha, though NABA does reserve the right to determine whether a group fits our membership criteria.

Thank you for joining NABA. This intrafaith hub fulfills the long-missing and sorely needed alliance of North American groups in different Buddhist traditions. We look forward to providing you with more information about and resources for NABA members and Buddhist groups, activities, and initiatives around this region through our website, NABA News, sponsored events, and others.

Please contact info@NorthAmericanBuddhistAlliance.org or 253-886-6251 if you are interested in or have questions about any of the above.
