If you were a VABA member in 2016 but did not renew by the end of the year, then your membership has expired and your account has been deleted. However, you can sign up again by clicking the link below. If you have filled out a profile in 2017 and just need to pay, click here.
Whether you have been a past member or never a member, we invite you to become one!
Membership is based on the calendar year, thus, regardless of when you join, your membership will expire annually on December 31. (i.e. submitting payment on March 2, 2017 leads to membership through December 2017).
