BIRA Membership Drive

It’s time to become a BIRA member!

Your membership is important to us. It gives us credibility in the community to address issues affecting both seasonal and year round residents such as the telecommunications and broadband projects, dune restoration and protection, beach access, the Block Island Power Company transition, well testing, wellness programs, and aquifer protections. We use your dues and donations to help support community organizations such as Helping Hands, the Lunch Bunch, NAMI Block Island, programs for island students through the Block Island School, the International Student Coalition, and Blues on the Beach. Our new initiative for 2020 is a campaign called the Shoreline Access Improvement Fund (SAIF), a partnership with town and other non-profits to improve access to out beaches. We hope you will consider a donation to this initiative when you renew.

Your membership is a stake in Block Island’s present and future and we need your support. Your membership card can also be used for discounts at participating Island business and restaurants.
