Voting (Platinum/Gold) & Non-Voting (Silver)

A voting member has the right to elect and run for the Board of Directors, plus vote on policies brought to the membership at the Annual Meeting.

 

Platinum/Gold Membership:

Make a Presentation — The ability to network during one of our meetings has proven to be very positive.  But, as a dues-paying member, you will have an opportunity to make a presentation highlighting your organization at one of our meetings.

 

Reduced Grant Writing Fees — Normally, PSG charges a flat $3,500 fee for our grant writing services.  However, we will reduce this for VSCCC stakeholders to $1,500 and handle all reporting and administrative work for the grant at no further charge to a stakeholder.  (Those fees will be built into the grant and paid for by the granting authority.)

 

Reduced Membership Fee for “FleetAnalytix” — — Normally, membership into our new fleet analysis and planning website is based on fleet size.  Memberships range from $350.00 to $600.00 depending on the quantity of vehicles in the fleet.  For VSCCC stakeholders, we will offer a flat $300.00 membership for CY2014.  As the site continues to expand in functionality and increase its capabilities…VSCCC fleets will NOT be charged any additional fees.  So, for $300.00 a stakeholder will receive the benefits available today and all of those that will be released next year. http://www.fleetanalytix.com
