    VAFRE members who would like to prepay for all of their meetings may purchase a Season Pass. A Season Pass covers all regular meetings from September 2018 through June 2019, including the monthly luncheons and the Awards luncheon.*

    The Season Pass allows members the convenience of one annual payment for VAFRE events at a discounted rate of $190.00 - that's $30 less than paying as you register for each event, or like getting to attend the Awards luncheon for free! Members may also send another staff person in their place if they are unable to attend a meeting (simply contact our offices to register your substitute).

    ADDED BONUS: Season Pass holders may register one guest to attend any one regular monthly meeting (excludes Awards luncheon) at no additional charge. That's an additional savings of $30!

    *VAFRE reserves the right to charge Season Pass holders for any additional events that may be scheduled.

    Please note: the Season Pass is available to members only. You must be logged in to register for this option.
