IF YOU HAVE ALREADY PAID YOUR 2020-2021 MEMBERSHIP DUES, PLEASE DISREGARD THE MESSAGE BELOW.THE NEW DUES FORM FOR THE UPCOMING MEMBERSHIP YEAR 2021-2022 WILL BE SENT TO ALL GRADUATES .
It has been a tough year with COVID-19 and all the restrictions. We, as an Association, were not able to meet in person at our 2020 Annual Retraining & Membership Meeting due to these restrictions.
With that being said, there are some members that have not paid their dues for the current 2020-2021 membership year (due August 3, 2020). I just want to remind those interested in Life Membership of what the by-laws state (see excerpt below); you must have 20 consecutive years of paying membership dues to become a Life Member.
So, if you did not pay dues for the current membership year (2020-2021), this is your reminder to be a member in good standing. Section 3. Life Membership. A Life member shall be an Active member who meets either of the following conditions:1.Has paid his/her membership dues for twenty (20) consecutive years or;2. Is a Past President.Life members shall be exempt from payment of dues and shall have the full privileges of an Active member.
I have attached the dues form for the 2020-2021 membership year. Please be sure to complete and mail with payment or proof of payment.
You can also pay your dues via PayPal on the VFSAAA website by following this link. VFSAAA Dues Page
Please follow the instructions on the form. If paying online, submit a copy of the PayPal receipt with your membership form and mail to the address below.TREASURER/VFSAAA 700 North Fifth Street Richmond, VA 23219
