Dues

BCBA dues are established by the Bylaws, which are adopted by member vote.

Dues are waived for:

  • Sitting and retired judges
  • Members who have been licensed for at least 50 years or who are at least 75 years old

Annual dues are $50 per lawyer, or one-half that amount for “public service” attorneys. Public service attorneys are defined as attorneys working for Mid Missouri Legal Services Corporation (other than the Director), Assistant Public Defenders for Boone County, and Assistant Prosecuting Attorneys for Boone County. The Executive Committee has the power to add or remove categories of attorneys from the public service classification upon affirmative vote of five or more members of the Executive Committee.

Dues are pro-rated according to the calendar quarter during which a new member joins as follows:

Quarter Regular Dues Public Service Attorney Dues
January-March $50.00 $25.00
April-June $37.50 $18.75
July-September $25.00 $12.50
October-December $12.50 $6.25

Existing members must pay full annual dues no later than April 1 each year to be retained on the membership rolls. Reminders to pay dues are published in the Newsletter. A former member whose membership has lapsed for at least six months may rejoin by paying the pro-rated dues listed above.
