Contributorship Renewal

Thank you for your support of BESS during the past year. We hope you have enjoyed participating in our educational and social events! If you have not done so already, we ask for you to continue to support BESS by renewing your BESS contributorship, as BESS contributorships expire on September 30th each year.

You can check the expiration date of your contributorship by looking at your BESS contributor card. The expiration date is located on the bottom right-hand corner.

Renewing your BESS contributorship is easy. You may obtain your new contributor card either in person or by regular mail. First print and complete the application form, then follow the instructions below.

Renewal In Person: Bring the completed renewal form, your current contributor card, and your contributorship fee to any BESS event. Contributorship fees are currently $30 if paid August 1st to April 30th and $20 if paid May 1st to July 31st. Additionally, contributorships paid for in August or September do not expire until the following year's September 30th. Contributorship fees can be paid by cash, charge or check made out to "BESS". Any Contributor Team member and any other Team leader can receive your form and fee. Additionally, Contributors Team representatives will be available between 7:00-7:30 pm at Educational Meetings to receive your form and fee. Your new card will be given to you immediately (if on hand) or mailed to you.

Renewal Via Mail: Mail the completed form and the contributorship fee to:

    BESS Contributor Renewals
    3375 Ellicott Center Drive
    PO Box 2443
    Ellicott City, MD 21041


We will mail your new card to you, or you can pick it up at a regular BESS meeting. There is no shipping fee but please allow up to 14 days for processing.

Thank you for your continued support of BESS and we hope that you will enjoy the many and varied events we have planned for the coming year.

Sincerely, BESS Contributors Team
