VBSR is a member-based organization, which means we are driven, directed and inspired by our members. There are, however, a number of ways that non-members can get involved.

Education & Networking

Business-to-business education is one of the cornerstones of VBSR. Willing to learn? Or have something to share? All are welcome at VBSR workshops and conferences and other events. Our Networking Get-Togethers are also popular events, hosted by VBSR members and showcasing different practices and policies. Check out our calendar of events for more info.

You can also find helpful business tools and tips on our resources page.


If you’re looking for additional visibility, VBSR membership offers a variety of complementary marketing benefits. You can also sponsor an event, or list a job or internship.
