Membership newsletter masthead

Membership in Northern Indiana Bluegrass Assoc.

Become a member of this great club and receive 11 monthly newsletters (Jan. - Nov.) and an annual festival guide that lists over 100 events in the upper-Midwest. Newsletters provide details of the events for the coming month. The newsletter is 3-1/2 pages long.

In the summer, many event sponsors ask us to mail their flyers so you can also stay current on other festivals and events. We will mail flyers for bluegrass events for only $25.

An individual membership is $10. Two adult memberships at in the same household would be $15 and would receive one mailing. Additional memberships in the same household are $5 each. 

Memberships run from May 1 to April 30 annually. You will receive a membership card in the mail along with a current newsletter and the festival guide.

Due to increased postage rates to Canada, one or two memberships with newsletters by mail are $15. Canadian memberships with e-mail newsletters are $10 for one, $15 for two. Mailing a newsletter to Canada costs $1.45!

A weekend ticket to the Memorial or Labor Day festival in Kendallville, IN, for NIBGA club members is only $40 each. Weekend tickets for non-members are $45 each.  If you are a member and attend both the Memorial and Labor Day festivals, your savings would equal the cost of your membership! Those 16 and older are considered adults and require memberships for festival discounts.

Over the next 10 years the USPS is intentionally slowing first-class mail and package delivery by changing service standards. The price of a first-class stamp is now 66 cents.  If you are getting your newsletter by the post office, please consider receiving it by email which arrives several days earlier and is in color. Send a note with your name and email to nl [at] nibga [dot] com

Other associations will honor a discount to their multi-day events so be sure to ask them.
