Regular Membership: For attorneys admitted to the Bar for more than five years.
Associate Membership: For attorneys admitted to the Bar more than five years, but who have neither an office nor a residence in Nassau County. Associate Members may not vote or hold office in NCBA (you may choose Regular Membership instead).
Junior First Membership: Attorneys who are newly admitted to the Bar (one year or less) pay only the $20 application fee.

If you are a Law School graduate who has not yet been admitted to the New York State Bar, please select Student Membership.
Junior Membership: For attorneys admitted to the Bar one to five years.
