Becoming a member is simple–just fill out our application form. Once your application has been processed, you will receive an email that explains how to pay your membership fee via Paypal. Once your membership fee is paid you will hear from your Group Coordinator (for those whose children are 3 years old and under) and start receiving VBC Notices and information on Social Activities.
As we are all volunteers (and busy parents!) there may be a delay of up to 2 weeks from the time you pay your fee until you start receiving all benefits. And if you join very early in your pregnancy, there may not even be a group as we wait until at least four parents have joined before soliciting a Group Coordinator. If you don’t want to wait, you could always volunteer to be a Group Coordinator yourself by emailing email@example.com. It’s a rewarding job (and not so difficult), and we provide training to get you started. In the meantime, you are always welcome at the VBC monthly meetings, which is the ideal place to meet other new members.
