A membership in the VSA makes a wonderful gift for any violin lover. A letter indicating the gift is from you will sent to the recipient.

Membership List Policy
The Violin Society of America does not make its mailing list available to anyone for any commercial purposes. However, a membership list containing members’ names, addresses, listing phone numbers and e-mail addresses will be made available to members only upon request, and for a fee. This list, will be for the personal use only of members so that members can contact one another. The list may not be sold, given away, duplicated or used for any mass-mailings.
Members may elect to have their name only, with no other contact information, on this list. To do so, please e-mail your request to firstname.lastname@example.org or by mail or phone. If we do not hear from you, your contact information will be placed on the membership list. You will be given the option on each membership renewal form to again decline placing contact information on the list.
The listing phone number on this list will be your business phone number if we have it in our records; otherwise we will use your home phone. If you prefer that we use a home phone as a listing phone, or that we do not list a phone number at all, please contact the office.
This membership list is available to members for a fee.
