Becoming a Member

We invite you to be a part of our vibrant community, the Bengali Association of Nevada (BANV).

  • Membership fee is $25 for a year, from August 1 – July 31 of the year following the one the membership payment is made.

  • After July 31 of each year, membership renewal becomes due

  • The Due Membership payments are collected along with the Durga Puja subscriptions.

    • So, for example, a membership payment made along with the Durga Puja subscriptions in 2018 will keep you as a BANV member till July 31  2019.

    • After July 31, 2019, you will have to renew the membership to enjoy the lower rates for Durga Puja 2019


  • If you pay the membership upon its becoming due after July 31, then you will enjoy a lower rate for the Durga Puja (that year) and Saraswati Puja (next year). You may also enjoy other benefits as well.
