AV Membership Types

Whether you are an individual, a family, or a professional, we have a membership type to suit your situation.

All three membership types include the option to add additional people to your membership to make it easier for you to register different people within your family for different events and for them to add their own areas of interest to their profile.

For Individual and Family Memberships, you can also choose between a manual annual renewal, or if you would like to save time spent on admin each year, choose an "auto-renew" membership type to set up an automatic annual membership renewal (requires a PayPal account).

Membership is based on an annual subscription.
