The NCVA is operated entirely by volunteers. It needs membership revenues to continue performing its outreach work in the community.
Membership is open to anyone, and there are no responsibilities associated with membership (although members are welcome to attend our Annual General Meeting, if they so wish!). Our members can receive discounts at various local vegan-friendly businesses, as well as a discount on attending NCVA potlucks!
When you become a member online, the NCVA receives notification from PayPal and a membership card is mailed to the address listed on your PayPal account. Please allow 2-3 weeks for delivery.
