Membership Link: bSa Individual Members | The National Institute of Building Sciences

Here's a little more detail from my last post.  For $75 you get access to a huge resource of people, information, ideas and the upcoming standards for BIM.  I want to say that if you don't join you're an idiot and won't be in business in 5 years, but I'll instead just say that this is really important and if you're serious about BIM and want to create more services, a higher quality product, be more interactive, educated and professional this is the way to go.

So, I'm begging you.  Make a difference. Be a part of the solution and not part of the problem.  Help make BIM better.  This only makes you more credible and incredible in your work and conversations about BIM...and you'll probably end up making more money from the benefits of the bSa.  At the very least, you'll have access to some of the top minds in the field.  Click here to join the Alliance.
