Welcome to VDDS Membership Registration!

VDDS’ Annual Membership is from June 1 to May 31.

VDDS COVID-19 UPDATE: Further to our E News early July, although logistically we could gather “live” using multiple ballrooms/foyers and simulcast technology, we have made the difficult decision to not gather for our AGM or for any lectures in 2020. Given your feedback as well as the uncertainty for the Fall and that we are a community of healthcare professionals, we feel we need to be extra prudent in protecting everyone’s health, our attendees and our speakers. We hope you all understand. We will reassess in the Fall as to how to proceed in January onward. We plan to offer either a Bronze Membership for January – May 2021, or another webinar series, or a combination of live and online events.

For 2020, we are excited to move forward with our inaugural event originally scheduled for late September and present the GPR Update Online Series, featuring 7 speakers in 7 evening webinars. We will be releasing more details next week.

In the meantime, please review the below membership options for consideration, that outline solutions for those who have already registered and for those who have not yet registered.
