The VMA accepts two methods of payment.
1- For Visa, MasterCard and Visa Debit. CLICK HERE
NOTE: if you do not enter an email address on the payment form, your payment may not be applied to your member account until the end of the month. This is due to a technical restriction of our payment system. Until there is a solution, please make sure you enter an email address on the payment form.
2- We accept Electronic Fund Transfer (EFT or e-Transfer) by sending your payment to email@example.com. For the security question we recommend using some information we would have on file such as the street you live on, the city you live in, your postal code, your primary instrument, etc. You can also send a separate email to let us know the answer to the security question. Never send the answer in the same email with the payment.
Account balances for individual members are not available on the website. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Annual membership is due in January. Our quarters are calculated on the calendar year: January 1st, April 1st, July 1st, October 1st. As per our by-laws, members who are 45 days in arrears are charged a late fee and suspended from membership until their dues are paid in full.
