NABO is a federation of Basque organizations--thus we do not have individual people as members but clubs, educational organizations, etc.  It is always gratifying to see new members joining up with our NABO federation, because it shows that new communities are forming institutions to gather Basques & their friends together.  Furthermore, it also shows that there is an ongoing willingness on the part of Basque organizations to work together to promote Basque culture.  We'd like to have your group with us!
