  • Please choose this option if you do not have a current NHAC membership. If you are registering a student (grades k thru 12), please consider the $20 yearly student membership-it's the same cost as the $20 non-member fee!

    As an adult signing up for more than one class, it will cost less to add a yearly membership instead of paying the non-member fee for each class!
