The WNBA has 12 active chapters. All but one are near major cities. The remaining chapter — the Network Chapter— is for anyone who does not live near a chapter city. You can live anywhere and be a National Network Member.
Members of all chapters also have access to the events, programs, and benefits provided by the WNBA’s National organization. The best way to stay informed is to subscribe to the WNBA’s Bookwoman newsletters.
The WNBA’s membership year runs June 1 — May 31.
If you join in April or May, you get those two months free, and then your membership will be valid until May 31.
Chapters hold events regularly. All events are currently virtual due to the coronavirus pandemic. Check with each chapter for upcoming events.

How to Renew Your Membership
You may renew your membership at any time. However, unless there are special circumstances that your chapter discloses, you will lose your membership privileges until you renew.
While some chapters have their own methods for renewal, most chapters enable you to renew your membership using the “Join” forms found on their websites.
To renew your Network Membership, simply click on the chapter in the list below and fill out the form. You may update any of your contact information at that time.
Start a Chapter
If you don’t live anywhere near a chapter city, you can start one!
If you are interested in starting a local chapter of WNBA, we suggest becoming a Network Member as a first step.
Once you have been a national Network Member for a year or more, you may wish to connect with other local Network Members and discuss the requirements of setting up a chapter.
