Are you passionate about creating positive change in the Alberni Valley? Join the YPAV! We offer a variety of membership benefits including networking, exclusive membership perks and more.

 

Membership Benefits

The Membership Benefit Plan has been designed to allow members to share their products and services with other members at a discounted rate.

The YPAV has also approached a few businesses in the community to share some of their deals and to give members access to other organizations like the Alberni Valley Chamber of Commerce.
