WACUBO dues are collected through NACUBO, and NACUBO requires membership in at least one region. If your institution resides in the western region, your membership is automatically billed with the NACUBO membership invoice. If your institution resides outside the southern region, perhaps in a “border” state, you may ask NACUBO to add WACUBO dues to your invoice.

If an institution wishes to join WACUBO, but not NACUBO, they still must fill out the top portion of the NACUBO registration form, but only indicate WACUBO on the form.
