It is hard to believe we are almost at the halfway mark of the year! And it is that time of the year to renew your valuable membership.
For the past few years, the Board has discussed the need to raise the membership dues. They actually haven’t been raised since 2005. That’s over 15 years. We were planning to implement it last year, but due to the unknown of what financial impact COVID would have, we postponed. For Professional membership, the dues will now be $120. For Professional members who hold a CCR, the renewal price will be $150 ($120 membership dues + $30 CCR renewal fee).
The Board has been getting the word out about the CCR, the only state-level certification program in the Commonwealth. We have promoted it to paralegal associations and bar associations by sponsoring and attending their virtual conventions and meetings. The dues increase will allow us to promote it even more enthusiastically in the coming years. We are letting everyone know VCRA members are their only go-to professionals in the Commonwealth.
Save the date for Saturday, October 2nd for VCRA’s Virtual Wellness Webinar and Friday, March 25th through Sunday, March 27th, 2022, for the much anticipated in-person Roaring ‘20’s convention, in Lynchburg, Virginia. We can’t wait to see you!
Finally, renew early, and you could win! Members who renew between now and June 15th will be entered into a drawing for a $50 Visa gift card. Renewal reminders will start arriving in inboxes in about a week, but if you’d like to renew now, please click this link.
Membership is a crucial part of VCRA’s mission to promote our profession. We are stronger together. Thank you for your continued support!
With warm regards,
Donna L. Linton, RMR-CCR-CLRPresident, VCRA
