Membership renewal fees are payable on/by January of each year. Ordinary membership is $30.00 per calendar year while  Associate memberships are $15.00 commencing in 2020. Second membership remains at $12.50.

The proceeds from membership fees are allocated as follows:
'Capitation' - VVAA National and State Committees receive a ‘Capitation’ of $15.00 per Ordinary Membership. National and State do not have any effective process to raise funding for administration and other running costs etc., i.e. printing of “DEBRIEF & FSB” magazines.

Sub Branch Administration - The residual $15.00 per Ordinary Member and $15.00 per Associate member, is used by the Committee for discretionary purposes outside the guidelines for Patriotic (Welfare) Funds. Welfare Funds are provided mainly from donations and fund raising activities (e.g. VV Badge Week, sausage sizzles etc.).
