Returning VES members will need to re-apply, and pay the required application fee (US $300 for Spring, and US $200 for the Fall). Returning members only need to upload a current resume (as opposed to the exhaustive work history), and click on ‘I am a returning member’ in order to avoid needing to secure new letters of endorsement. The VES Membership Committee does not scrutinize returning members’ applications as if they were new applicants because they’ve already applied once and been accepted.
