Annual membership renewal for returning members

Payment for membership in BURA is required by July 1st of each year for the following twelve-month period. The annual fee is reviewed by the Executive Team each spring and, if a recommendation is made to increase the annual fee, the members will vote on the recommendation at the Annual General Meeting (AGM) normally held in May.

When the annual fee is expected to remain the same, i.e. no increase over the current year, members will receive an email in early May advising them that the Treasurer is now prepared to receive the new year’s membership dues. However, if the membership approves an increase in fees at the AGM, collection of fees will be delayed until after the vote at the AGM. The current annual membership fee is $20.

The annual membership fee may be paid via any of the following three methods*:

  1. By e-transfer to BURA via and if a password is required, please use the word treasurer. Should you use a different password, kindly e-mail it in a separate message again to Please clearly note in the comments section of the e-transfer who and what the payment is for.
  2. By cheque payable to BURA and mailed to:
    BURA Treasurer
    c/o 95 Highland Ave
    St. Catharines, ON L2R 4HP
  3. Cash payment – your new membership card will be your receipt.

*BURA cannot accept credit card payments.

When payment is received in May or June and is prior to the Annual General Meeting (AGM) or any other events before the end of June, your new membership card will be prepared and available for pick up at the entrance to those events. For those who aren’t able pick up their new card, it will be mailed to your home address following the final event of the expiring social season.
