- To start the renewal process, members must log in. If you cannot remember your log in credentials, please contact staff.
- Required fields are marked with an asterisk. These fields provide information that is used to contact members, enhance member benefits, and help VCNP better understand our memberships’ needs.

- VCNP collects donations for our scholarship program and PAC during registration. Consider adding a donation when you renew!
- Want one less thing to do? Select to sign up for auto-renewal and scratch that off your list!
