Lifetime Memberships

There is one type of lifetime membership.

Membership may be granted to individuals at least eighteen years of age or who are otherwise emancipated.

Membership may also be granted to family groups consisting of one to two adults and their dependent children, if any, in one common household.  A dependent is a chid and/or parent of a member over half of whose support in the calendar year before the pool season was received from the member.   If a child over twenty-five years of age or a parent of a member requests to be acknowledged as a dpendent, the member shall provide proof of dependency before a membership card is issued.

Payment of Fees

Lifetime Members must pay both an initiation fee and yearly dues, commencing the first year of use. Both the initiation fee and that season’s yearly dues are payable in full at the time a Lifetime Membership is offered. Yearly dues for subsequent seasons will be billed by early February and are due in full no later than March 1st of each year. A $100 late charge will apply if dues sent are postmarked on or after March 2nd.

Dues not sent and postmarked by March 15th will be considered lapsed, and the membership will be redeemed.

Redemption

Redemption is the surrender of your Lifetime Membership back to VPCA, permanently terminating your membership in the Association. Redemptions may take place from January 1 through May 15 of each year. To redeem, you must surrender your membership certificate.  If you have lost your certificate, please submit a letter stating so, your wish to redeem and signature(s) of member(s) listed on certificate.
