From 2009/10 the Board of the IPBA has introduced two new levels of membership aimed at people who want to support the organisation beyond the normal annual subs. but do not have the time or the opportunity to do so. The IPBA Friend and IPBA Patron levels cost $15 and $30 respectively. UK members who wish to donate in this way should add £10 or £19 for 2012/13.
