VCSA 2023 Membership Refresh
This year, the VCSA is changing the way it handles membership.
- Do you want to be contacted with opportunities and news that is specific to your organisation's area of work?
- Do you want to easily find data on the sector in Shropshire that is up to date and helpful for funding or reporting?
- Have you ever wondered who else is a VCSA member?
- Do you wish that the annual State of the Sector survey took a little bit less time to complete?
Then these are all great reasons to renew your membership today!
The new membership form is now available online, and can be completed by clicking here. Each organisation only needs to fill out the form once, and additional contact names can be added whenever you want. Please note, that if you are currently a member and want to continue your VCSA membership, you will need to complete this new form.
Updating your information will also be easy. Each year, you will receive a reminder to check your membership information is up to date, and you will only need to correct any information that has changed. There will be an "update your membership" link on the website very soon, and you can do it at your leisure. It's that simple!
Not a member yet? Then join us! Any voluntary and community sector group or organisation working for the benefit of Shropshire can join free of charge. Your group or organisation can be as active as you choose.
