Individual Memberships

Membership is open to any individual interested in supporting the work of the Bay Area Montessori Association.

Membership benefits include:

Individual membership is a $35 annual fee, and is valid from Sept 1- Aug 31. Membership is non-transferable. All memberships automatically expire on Aug 31. Memberships can carry over to the next school year only if the individual registered AFTER all of our workshops for the year have ended. 

  • Free attendance to BAMA sponsored workshops and lectures; discounts on workshops with member organizations
  • Access to BAMA online professional network for information, exchange, and support
  • Online postings on BAMA's website and Facebook including employment, classifieds, school/community events, school celebrations, and anniversaries
  • Email notifications on national and local Montessori organizations' activities in the San Francisco Bay Area 
  • Volunteer opportunities at national and local events
  • General social and networking opportunities

We will soon be offering School Memberships, which will apply towards a certain number of spots per school instead of individual people. Details coming soon!
