Becoming a VIG Member
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.
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.
