Lifetime Membership

View the current lifetime members now!

Passion, dedication and knowledge are truly some of the main driving forces behind beauty professionals of any age. To show sincere appreciation, PBA honors those individuals who have dedicated the majority of their lives to the advancement of the beauty industry through the Lifetime Member Program. This program recognizes and rewards loyal individual section members with 50+ consecutive years of membership with a complimentary PBA Lifetime Member membership.

Lifetime Membership status is extended to active members with 50+ years of consecutive Beauty Professional/NCA membership and is renewable annually without any association dues, while maintaining full access to membership benefits.

In addition to the complimentary PBA Lifetime Membership, Lifetime Members receive a certificate, congratulatory letter from the Membership Committee Chair and a lapel pin to proudly display their achievement.

Scholarships will be awarded to current PBA individual and student members to use towards continuing education or cosmetology school.

A total of eight (8) $1,000 scholarships will be awarded over a two-year period (four (4) per year).

Become a PBA Ambassador

PBA Ambassadors are current members of the association that warmly welcome new members to PBA by simply making a phone call or sending an email. During the call, Ambassadors share why they initially joined the association and also let new members know how they drive value from their membership. Ambassadors also sport a gray 'Ambassador' ribbon at all PBA signature events. We are eternally grateful for their help with on-boarding every new member and encourage you to say "hello" the next time you see them at an event. Many thanks to all of our PBA Ambassadors!
