Help Grow VCBC Membership

The VCBC directors group have initiated a membership drive and they invite all current members to join the effort. You can download and print invitation forms at VCBC MEMBERSHIP INVITATION, which also contains a membership application form. The idea is pass these invitations out, stuff them in door handles, place under windshield wipers, etc. If you do decide to place them on cars, please put the form into a ziploc bag first so that the water soluble ink doesn't mess the owners' expensive paint/wash job.

See the January 2015 newsletter for more info.
