Members* of the VAF earn Priority Points that are used to determine their overall ranking among all members.
VAF uses a member’s Priority Points when assigning both ticket and parking locations. Priority Points are recalculated each year and are activated when a current year Annual Fund pledge is made.
*Any individual that makes a donation to VAF becomes a VAF Member.
