NABL members are attorneys, issuers, and all other industry participants (municipal advisors, bankers, government financial officers, etc.) involved in the public finance industry. NABL is an individual, not firm, membership.

State/local/federal government attorneys (who do not render opinions) and non-attorney professionals that deal with any aspect of state or municipal obligations qualify as NABL Affiliate Members.  

NABL has a Retired Member category for lawyers who have retired from practicing law in public finance. If you would like to sign-up as a retired member, please contact NABL.   

Law students qualify as NABL Student Members, free of charge until graduation.

Paralegals and legal assistants involved in a public finance practice qualify as Paralegal Members.

“I could not imagine being a bond attorney for 40 years without the support NABL provided in keeping me current on the complex statutory and regulatory requirements of the practice. In effect, NABL was an extension of my law firm resources where I could stay completely up to date on best practices nationally. I read everything NABL provided cover to cover as well as attended as many conferences as I could. I reached out to NABL members who without exception were insightful and always willing to discuss practice issues.”

“NABL has really provided a community for me to learn and explore within the public finance area. There are some great educational resources available to all members and the trainings are first class. In addition, my participation in NABL events and forums have led to friendships and working relationships that span the country which provide a great resource as my practice has continued to develop.”
