Membership enrollment is easy

Everyone who is 50 or older and lives in Central Vermont is welcome to become a member of BASC! We ask for a small donation of $25 per year which entitles you to many no and low-cost programs, as well as a discount on our bus trips.

BASC partners with other community organizations where you also receive a discount when you are a BASC member, such as Jazzercise and the Rehab Gym in Barre, VT.
