Membership Cards

NYSBA has released a new, redesigned membership card that creates a more convenient way for members to track their engagements with NYSBA and to access their benefits.

Need a new or replacement NYSBA membership card?

Membership Card FAQs:

  • Why is the member since date incorrect?
    The member since date included on your newly re-designed membership card is the continuous member since date included on your basic member record, which may be different than your join date. The join date and the continuous member since date could be different if there was a lapse in or change in membership designation/status.  Re-ordered cards will include the member join date instead of the continuous member since date.  
  • Why do the cards not include an expiration date?
    The increased quality of the cards makes them more durable so they will last longer. The cards are meant to be our members’ permanent membership cards. However, members may request replacement cards whenever they are lost, destroyed or stolen free of charge. New members will receive cards, replacement cards may be re-ordered and members will receive new Platinum cards when they upgrade to Sustaining Membership.
