Membership Renewals for 2014

It's that time of the year again: time for all CBA members and subscribers to renew your annual memberships and/or subscriptions for 2014, that is!

Active Members and Associate Members of the CBA may renew your annual membership (currently $50), along with any optional subscriptions to the OTA and/or NTA, in the following ways:

  • Renew by mail, paying by check, responding to the renewal forms sent to you by regular mail in December.
  • Renew online, paying by credit card, using the online payment system of this website. To do so:
    1. LOGIN to the members-only portion of this website (see the menu bar on top right of this screen).
    2. Look for the "USER MENU" on the right side of this screen, and click the third item: "Renew My Membership."
    3. Follow the instructions on the page that appears.

Non-member Subscribers to the OTA and/or NTA
may also renew their subscriptions online and pay by credit card by clicking the following link:

For help renewing your membership and/or subscriptions, or other questions regarding the CBA, please Contact the CBA Office.

Credit card processing generates extra costs to us, and because our prices are so low we need to charge a $5 administrative fee for all credit card payments. We appreciate your understanding!

Membership Benefits

Attendance at Annual Meetings of the Association is limited to active and associate members and to those persons who receive an invitation at the request of the President (these include candidates being proposed for membership at that meeting).

Papers and Presentations at Annual Meetings may be given only by active members, or by other persons at the invitation of the President.

Subscription to The Catholic Biblical Quarterly is included in the Annual Membership Dues (currently just $50 per year) for all active, associate, and sustaining members.

Discounts on Other Publications (including volumes of the CBA Monographs Series) are available for all CBA members.

Access to the Membership Directory and some other sections of this website is restricted to Active and Associate Members of the CBA.

How to Become a Member


Candidates for active membership must have the degree of Licentiate in Sacred Scripture from the Pontifical Biblical Institute in Rome or the equivalent in graduate training (generally taken to be a doctorate from a good biblical studies program) or in scholarly publication.

Candidates for associate membership must have taught Sacred Scripture for at least one year at major-seminary level or at least two years at college level, or must be engaged in higher studies in the biblical or allied field.
