Full membership is a must for every professional bridge journalist. At major tournaments IBPA membership is the key to the press room and a number of other benefits. Between venues the IBPA Bulletin and IBPA's news services are a never ceasing source of column material. You can file your application for full membership now.
Anybody with interest in IBPA's activities can apply for associate membership.

This is so because "you" in the context = any member. That older Bulletins can be accessed by everybody changes nothing in this regard.
