Becoming a VIG Member

Eligibility

Every county, city, and town in Virginia is eligible to become a member of VIG. Any town under 1,000 population becomes a member automatically when its parent county joins.

Dues

Membership dues are based on the locality's population. They range from $250 to $20,000. This formula was recommended by a task force of public officials to be equitable and affordable.  

Benefits
  • Unlimited access to AskVIG, VIG's email inquiry service 
  • A complimentary eBook version of the latest Virginia Local Government Tax Rates
  • Brokered training and facilitation services — Our instructors and practitioners can personalize training and facilitation services for a range of audiences including front-line employees, senior administrative officers, and the elected body.
