VVA 862 Public Announcement about our Membership Agreement

BULLETIN:  VVA National will be permanently changing the cost of a VVA life membership to

$50.00 at the Leadership Conference next week in Palm Springs.


 Even if all remaining Chapter 862 “non-life” members take advantage of this, we will still receive

more money in life membership rebates than the cost of this discount. 

Therefore, for $50.00, you can't beat it.
