​Registration for the 2021 Virtual Seminar Annual Subscriptions, is now open and available only to NASBP Members, Affiliates, and Associates. Still only $995–that’s nearly half off what you would pay if you bought each of the nearly two dozen Virtual Seminars individually. Again in 2021, NASBP is offering a Subordinate Subscription, available online to the enrolled member location(s) of an NASBP maximum dues-cap member and the branch location(s) of an affiliate member. In order for a Member or Affiliate to be eligible for the Subordinate Subscription, one enrolled member location must already have purchased the Virtual Seminar Annual Subscription at the $995 fee. Then when any (or each) enrolled member location goes to register, it will be charged only the $250 Subordinate Subscription fee (If you are not seeing the subordinate subscription rate, please contact Professional Development at and request a subordinate discount registration code).

It is our goal to assist clients and potential obligees in making wise decisions about bonding projects where taxpayer money is involved.
