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 five or fewer years or age 40 or younger are automatically enrolled in the Young Lawyers Division. This includes Young Lawyers Division members and New Admittee members as well as Government, Nonprofit, Legal Aid and Law School Faculty members.

If you have a question about which level of membership is right for you, please call Elizabeth Gerde at the VBA office at 804-644-0041, ext. 118.

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 10% 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.
