About BPOA

Membership Benefits & Services

Joining BPOA is the easiest business decision you'll ever make. Benefits for Housing Providers include:

  • Education. We alert you to the near-constant changes in the laws and regulations that govern Berkeley housing. We share Berkeley-only property management tips from our members. We host workshops and seminars where you can get help from professionals. And of course, you receive our prized monthly newsletter.

  • Emergency Help. A quick call to our office can help you avoid costly mistakes.

  • Forms. DON'T make the mistake of using mass-market leases or other forms that haven't been adapted to Berkeley's peculiar laws!

  • Political Advocacy. This is YOUR trade association, and we protect you. Our staff and always-vigilant members track local developments. Our activities return far more to your bottom line than the cost of your membership.
  • Benefits Like This: Now, new and renewing members will receive a coupon good for 50% off their next purchase of up to $100 in merchandise. That's like getting a check for $50 when you join or renew! The discount applies to nearly everything sold at Ashby Lumber & Hardware. Only power tools, sale items, and special orders are excluded. Coupons will be mailed by BPOA to qualifying new and renewing members.

We offer two membership categories.

  • Regular Members (Housing Providers) pay a base fee of $120 plus $10 per number of units owned.

  • Associate Members are other lay folk and professionals interested in Berkeley housing policies and the Berkeley housing market, but have no rental units. Associate members pay a flat $200 per year.
