When you renew your NFDA membership, don't forget to purchase a 2013 music license for each of your locations. With NFDA, you pay only $235 – the lowest rate available – for a music license covering all three licensing organizations (BMI, SESAC and ASCAP). Click here for more information.

*If your firm is located in a "partnership" state (your state association collects dues for your firm's membership in NFDA and the state association), you will receive a separate invoice from NFDA for a 2013 music license. If your firm is located in a "choice" state (you pay dues for your firm's membership in NFDA and the state association separately), the option to purchase a music license will be included on your NFDA renewal invoice
