There shall be four types of memberships:
Any ex-student of CPC Bali, who was enrolled for at least one full academic year at the institution as a student, and is in accordance with the principles and policies of the Association, may become a member of BOBA USA by accepting the terms of the Constitution of BOBA USA and the Constitution and By-Laws of a Chapter, and by paying annually, in advance, the requisite membership fees as prescribed by the General Assembly.

1. Has been on the administrative, teaching or auxiliary staff of CPC Bali
2. Is the spouse of a BOBAN
3. Have any other close connection with the institution, and whose membership is accepted after a formal application is submitted to a Chapter of his/her choice.
An Associated member shall enjoy all the rights and privileges of a full member except they
shall not be allowed to vote at the General assembly and will not be eligible to run for elected
An Associate membership card issued and signed by a Chapter president (or in the case of the non-existence of a Chapter in a member’s locality, by the national president) shall be evidence of Associate membership in good standing
Any member who pays, in advance, the equivalent of 10 years of the current membership fees and completes such payments within a period of 3 consecutive years shall be granted the status of a life member.
NB: The association reserves the right to cap the number of lifetime members.
The title of honorary member shall be conferred by Chapters or the National Association to individuals or organizations in the community, who the Chapters or the National Association may from time to time identify as having shown extra-ordinary interest in the association.
Members of the National Association in good standing where new Chapter are being formed, or who establishes permanent residence within the jurisdiction, or who work within the jurisdiction of an existing Chapter, may affiliate with the local Chapter and be entitled to vote upon presenting evidence of their membership in good standing by way of a valid membership ID Card.
Such members shall not be assessed annual national membership fees by the Chapter until the expiration of the annual membership for which they have paid. A valid dated membership ID card issued and signed by the Chapter president (or in the case of the absence of a Chapter by the national president) shall be evidence of membership in good standing
The effective date of Membership in the National Association and/or Chapter shall be the date on which an authorized officer of the National Association or the Chapter receives the membership fee.
Members in good standing can vote or hold office in the Association. Members may exercise such voting rights at all general meetings during which voting matters may arise.
Please note the following:
All membership dues collected prior to the convention by an authorized personal of the association at both the national and chapter level shall be considered to be payment in advance, and shall be credited toward the fiscal year that stared on July 1 of the convention year. For example, all dues collected prior to the 2017 convention shall be credited toward the 2018 fiscal year that ends on June 30, 2018.
All membership dues collected during the convention by an authorized personnel of the association at both the national and chapter levels shall be considered to be ‘‘payment on time’’, and shall apply toward the fiscal year that started on July 1 of the convention year. For example, all dues collected during the 2007 convention shall be considered to be on-time payments and shall be credited toward the 2008 fiscal year.
All membership dues collected after the annual convention and credited toward the fiscal year that started on July 1 of the convention year (at the member’s choice) shall be defined as ‘‘late payment’’. For example, payment received in December 2017 and credited toward the 2018 fiscal year that started on July 1 , 2017, shall be considered as late payment.
Due to the fact that the constitution allows for the annual convention to hold within 60 days into the fiscal year, the period between July 1 and the convention shall be called the ‘‘transitional period’’. During this period, registered membership for the fiscal year that just ended shall remain valid. Considering the fact that convention dates vary from year to year, transitional periods shall also vary from year to year. However, the duration of membership shall be stated in terms of July 1 to June 3oth, or lifetime membership, as the case may be.
