There are two levels of CVSBEH Membership:

Basic Membership – Free

Basic non-paying Membership (one year) includes:

  • FREE access to the CVSBEH E-Bulletin with monthly updates on local issues, funding opportunities, events and more.
  • FREE ‘contact us with a question’ service.

This service allows Members to call up and ask a quick question that will not require further research or more in depth support.

Full Membership includes all of the benefits of Basic Membership (as above), plus:
