Our federation is built upon the foundation of member organizations (Basque clubs, educational groups, etc.) that were self-formed years ago by dedicated local individuals; i.e., clubs were created at the grass-roots level. 

At one point all our member organizations started by getting a small group together to join in pursuing a common goal.  This might well have been a small group meeting at someone's house or over a meal.  Sometimes it even takes looking through the local phone book to find Basque names! 

So what can NABO do for your club?  It depends. 
In the end, our federation is only as strong as its parts and that's our member clubs--each club must build itself.  It takes a group of dedicated local individuals to start the Basque fire and keep it burning.  Since the question is eventually asked, it must be answered:  NABO does not have financial resources to provide forming clubs.  But there are some things that NABO can offer its members that derives from our shared resources:

Membership Drive
Elkar Ezagutzea-Club
Seven Essentials of a Basque Club

Public Relations

Club self-assessment
