Join the PBWA/Renew Your Membership
To join the Professional Basketball Writers Association or renew membership for the upcoming season, an applicant must meet the criteria outlined in the PBWA’s bylaws and pay a $20 annual membership fee.
Becoming a PBWA member does not guarantee you will receive media credentials from specific teams or from the NBA. Indeed, already possessing credentials typically is a precursor for membership. Writers who are not regularly credentialed to cover professional basketball are encouraged first to review the membership criteria outlined in the bylaws and then contact a PBWA officer — President Josh Robbins, Vice President Steve Bulpett, Vice President Darnell Mayberry and Treasurer K.C. Johnson — to inquire about their eligibility.
Only active members may compete in the PBWA’s annual writing contest, vote for the PBWA’s annual awards and participate in PBWA meetings.
To pay your annual dues, you may do so by using a major credit card or via PayPal.
