NSSRA Member Services


The annual Combined Indemnified Bindings List, long considered one of the most important and exclusive benefits of NSSRA membership, is available at no cost to NSSRA members.

NSSRA dues, which start at $99.00 and are based on the number of stores, are a fraction of the value of the services and programs offered by NSSRA. Your dues are critical in allowing the Association to continue providing these services. In addition to exclusive publications like the biennial NSSRA Cost of Doing Business Survey, the NSSRA Retailer Compensation and Benefits Report, and the annual Snow Sports Participation Report, NSSRA offers services that help you keep your costs under control. A complete listing of these services can be found below.

        ASTM International, formerly the American Society for Testing and Materials, is one of the largest voluntary
        standards development organizations in the world. It develops standards, practices and guidelines for more
        than 130 areas. In particular, the F27 Committee is responsible for the guidelines that evolve into the shop
        practices specified by manufacturers in the technicians' manuals. NSSRA works to ensure that standards being
        developed by the Committee lead to procedures compatible with ski and snowboard shops' day-to-day operations.
