Membership Types

GBA has five GBA affiliated practitioner membership types available. Affiliated practitioners are typically firms and individuals who provide the services and information GBA Member Firms need to enhance their own businesses. All five GBA affiliated practitioner membership types are by invitation only. Would you like to be invited? Just request an invitation. The GBA affiliated practitioners membership types are listed below, along with a description of each type and the dues associated with each type.
