Join the Virginia Motorcoach Association!

The Virginia Motorcoach Association is a professional association for the bus industry in the State of Virginia. It represents bus and tour operators at the state level of government and retains a professional legislative advocate in Richmond to keep the association informed on pending legislation affecting the bus industry. VMA provides for professional development and the sharing of information through membership meetings, seminars, and its annual regional meeting, co-located with the North Carolina and South Carolina Motorcoach Associations. Close communication is maintained with our members throughout the year, particularly through email notices.

New Membership

Applications for new membership are welcome. New members are admitted to the association by majority vote of the Board of Directors upon receiving completed application and documentation which satisfies the membership requirements. New Members shall consist of any industry operator or service provider which has (a) never belonged to the Virginia Motorcoach Association, or (b) for which membership has lapsed and has subsequently changed ownership. Membership acceptance will be made upon completion of a majority board vote, at which time appropriate dues payment will be due. Please note that members who have allowed their membership to lapse and seek readmission, provided they hold the same ownership as while they were members, are not considered new applicants and not subject to board vote.
