Once application for membership is made to VOMA with payment of dues, the application is presented to the membership of VOMA for a vote of acceptance at the next Business Meeting (Spring and Fall of each year). If the voting members accept the application, membership will be granted. Until that vote, membership is listed as “pending” and the applicant will be added to the database and receive all mailings and updates that regular members receive.

This can be printed and completed and mailed manually, digitally signed and emailed with Paypal or credit card payment, or simply filled in, printed and mailed; whatever is convenient to you.
