Fall Season Updates

 Welcome to the 2016- 2017 Durham Bar season! 

 Dues invoices for the new fiscal year have been sent to the mail house for processing and are going out in batches by zip code. About 95% of you have probably received yours by now, I believe 27701 and 27702 are still in process and should arrive in a few days. As always you will have three months to pay. 

 If you would prefer to pay immediately you can download your invoice from the 1200 page master invoice file located at this link, which is fully searchable.

 You can also go online to durhambar.org and use your NC State Bar number as both your username and password, in order to pay with a credit or debit card. The (only) 34 who remain unpaid for last year are receiving a two-year invoice for their convenience.
