    Important Clarification: Our membership is for one year and starts on August 1st and ends on July 31st of the following year. Membership renewal usually begins before Durga Puja. Becoming a member at the beginning of our fiscal year is always good for the member and helps the Board to correctly prepare Prabasi's yearly budget. Lifetime members do not need to renew their membership. They get all Patron benefits for life, and also get VIP seating on all Prabasi cultural events.
