Membership Model

BAPA has decided to follow a new wave of membership models. We track our success by the number of folks we engage, be it participating in an event, sharing and supporting a cause on social media, being part of a committee or leading a chapter and organizing an event. We feel that engagement is most beneficial to our community as a whole. We also feel that by collecting a yearly membership fee we would be taking away funds from local organizations, whom many of you already support. We strive to offer networking opportunities by working with various partners, both locally and nationally. Our events usually have minimal operational costs, as most of the venues we select are free or have only minimal costs, and are already utilized by the communities they serve. When we work on larger events, we seek out corporate and non-profit sponsorship. We pride ourselves by supporting successful existing BiH projects in North America, and rallying nationwide awareness.
