Memberships run for the calendar year. Dues are collected annually at the first of the year. Active members can renew online.
Please review the available membership levels and select the one that matches your situation. You will be asked to register for the site and be taken to the starting point for the form required to activate membership.
All lawyers in practice less than three years or under age 37 are automatically enrolled in the Young Lawyers Division and qualify for Regular and Young Lawyers Division memberships.
If you have a question about which level of membership is right for you, please call the VBA office at 804-644-0041.

Membership dues may be deductible as an ordinary and necessary business expense, but are not deductible as a charitable contribution. However, the VBA does estimate that 12 percent of your basic dues are used for lobbying expenses as defined by Section 13222 of the Revenue Reconciliation Act of 1993, and are therefore nondeductible as a business expense.
