Yarra River Business Assocation Membership

Annual membership subscription to Melbourne's dynamic Yarra River/ Southbank business association. 

In response to the challenges presented to businesses during COVID-19, the normal membership categories (featured below) and fees have been suspended by the Board of YRBA. The 2021/2022 membership fee for the Association has been reduced to a flat rate of $70 + gst per business. To join, please just enter your business details below and pay the $77 via the payment portal. Please note, you do not need to have a Paypal account to pay via this method.

Choose how you wish to interact with the local business community (YR Connect, YR Engage, or YR Participate). Refer to the brochure about the membership benefits of each level, or click here here to read. Fill-in your details and submit. You can choose to pay now with paypal or credit card, or to receive an invoice to process the conventional way.
