The NAFRA and NABEA have merged into one Association (The NAFRA).
After the passing of long time NABEA executive director Mel Barth there was discussion between stakeholders of the NAFRA and NABEA, it was decided that the NABEA would become part of the NAFRA. Current members of the NABEA are eligible for membership privileges with the NAFRA at no cost, to transfer your NABEA membership you must provide a copy of your unexpired NABEA Credentials to member services prior to
December 31, 2015. After January 1, 2016 NABEA members will no longer be able to transfer their NABEA membership but can join the NAFRA as new members.
