Membership Categories and Benefits


There are several Categories of Membership in the Catholic Biblical Association (CBA):

Anyone (members of the general public) may apply to become a Sustaining Member. Candidates for either Full Membership or Associate Membership must be formally sponsored by a Full Member of the Association, and then be elected to membership at an annual general meeting of the Association.

Subscription to The Catholic Biblical Quarterly is included in the Annual Membership Dues (currently just $50 per year) for all Full, Associate, and Sustaining members.

Discounts on selective Other Publications (including volumes of the CBA Monographs Series) are available for all Full, Associate, and Sustaining Members.

Attendance at Annual General Meetings of the Association is limited to Full Members and Associate Members, and to those persons who receive an invitation from the President (these include candidates being proposed for membership at that meeting).

Papers and Presentations at Annual General Meetings may be given only by Full Members, or by other persons at the invitation of the President.

Access to the Membership Directory and some other sections of this website is restricted to Full and Associate Members of the CBA.
