The Nedonna Beach Neighborhood Association would like to invite you to join/rejoin our membership in 2023. Thank you if you have already paid your 2023 dues. If you have not previously been a member or are new to our community, please consider joining our Association.
“The purpose of the NBNA is to help build the Nedonna Beach community, facilitate members communicating with each other, and to provide a voice for community concerns. The NBNA is a true grassroots, volunteer-run organization.” – https://www.nedonnabeach.org/about-us/
Although our scope is limited, we have made substantial contributions to the Nedonna Beach neighborhood. The NBNA has accomplished some significant things for a non-regulatory organization focusing on communication and networking around common concerns.
Membership dues per family are $25 for the year, January – December. Membership includes one vote per property on association matters.
Associate Membership is $10.
Extended family, frequent guests and interested parties can receive email updates and news.
Dues can be paid online by going to the main page of the NBNA website. https://www.nedonnabeach.org/ The yellow paypal “donate” button will allow you to pay your membership. Note your payment as 2023 dues and your Nedonna address.
You can mail your payment to: NBNA, PO Box 613, Rockaway Beach, Oregon 97136.
**Donations to support specific committees or general efforts can be made through Paypal when you pay your dues.
If you are looking for ways to be involved with our community, to engage your family in community service, or to support the efforts of the Association, there are a variety of committees needing people with diverse skill sets.
As a board,
