I have renewed my membership, but my profile still shows “expired”. Why?

If you have selected to pay by “check” or “bill me”, and the date is within the membership year, your membership remains “expired” until payment is received by NCBP.

If you are renewing a membership that had lapsed in the previous year, membership will need to be reset manually. Please contact Steve Jones, NCBP Membership Coordinator, to have your record updated.
