90% of VAB’s funding comes from the NCSA messages you air, so thank you for participating! However, NCSA funds cannot be used to pay for Political Action, so this nominal increase in membership dues, which have not been raised in years, is to ensure your best interests are advocated for when State and Federal Government proposes legislation that affects our industry.
