Qualifications for Associate Membership
Associate members are eligible for most association benefits except those specific to managing vacation rentals such as participation in monthly Geo-Analytics reports and some aspects of Discover Vacation Homes initiative.
This is a company membership, not an individual membership. During the application process, a Primary contact must be identified who will be the main representative for the company's membership. The Primary representative is the individual who should receive all official communications from VRMA related to the company's membership including voting rights. Secondary representatives may be added at no additional cost. All representatives will receive electronic communications including information about association events, educational opportunities, and industry information.
Associate Membership is right for you if the following criteria are met. Your company must:
- provide a service for at least two vacation rental units on behalf of third party owners (such as a transaction broker, CVB, or other DMO)
- not be engaged in full-service management (that is a Manager member)
- not sell a product or service to vacation rental management companies (that is a Vendor/Supplier member)
If your company doesn't meet these criteria, click here to find out which membership category is right for you.
Dues are a flat fee of $795.
Membership term is January – December. From February through September, dues are prorated by the month, for new members. Starting in October, new members joining will pay "pro-rate plus" dues, which is pro-rated dues for the current year plus dues for the entire following year.
