Vienna Woods requires the purchase or rental of a share of stock in Community Ventures, Inc. Membership entitles you to use of the pool during the summer and the tennis courts year round. Share owners have voting privileges in club management decisions and the right to serve on the Board of Directors, the governing body of the Club.
The cost to purchase a share is $1,500. A one-time non-refundable Initiation Fee of $75 is charged at the time of purchase. In addition to the one-time share payment, members must pay annual dues or designate that their share be rented by March 5th each year.
Annual Dues are currently $525. The non-use/rental designation fee is $75. If postmarked after March 5th, dues or rental designations are subject to a $50 late fee. If postmarked after April 15th, the late fee increases to $75. The value of the share is determined by the Board of Directors annually in October and has risen over time. When a member sells a membership, the current value is refunded to the member less a Transfer Fee of $30.
All fees are subject to change by the time a wait list applicant purchases or rents a membership.
WAIT LIST TO PURCHASE A MEMBERSHIP
Vienna Woods has a limit of 750 total memberships. The wait list is very long (850+ names) and the wait to purchase a membership is estimated at 8-9 years for those getting on the list now. In 2017, the Pool is selling to names that were added to the waitlist in early September of 2008. While this may seem like a long wait to purchase if you are just now signing up, after a few summers, we may be able to offer you a rental membership while you are on the wait list to purchase a share. In 2017, rentals were offered to names added to the wait list to purchase between September 2008 and early June 2013. The good news is that once you have been offered a rental, the chance of getting one in subsequent years is excellent.
To place your name on the wait list, please send a $25 check payable to Community Ventures, Inc., along with your address, contact phone numbers and email address to: P.O. Box 33, Vienna VA 22183.
This fee is non-refundable, but applies to the $75 Initiation Fee, charged at the time of purchase. An email will be sent to confirm receipt of your check and placement of your name on the wait list to purchase a share. Once a name is entered on the list, the applicant remains on the list until eventually rising to the top and being offered a membership to purchase.
Our Club does not skip names on the list or change the position of the names after they have been entered. If the applicant declines the purchase when offered, the name is removed from the wait list. The club does not offer a permanent rental status.
A rental membership is the use of the membership privileges of a share owner who is not using the club. Rental memberships are offered only to those on the wait list to purchase a membership. The club does not offer permanent rental memberships. Renters have equal privileges to owners in use of the facilities, but may not vote at stockholder's meetings or serve on the Board of Directors. The cost to rent a membership is $690.
Our procedure is that In January the Club sends an email to the top 400 names on the wait list asking if they are interested in a rental membership for the coming summer. Receipt of this email is not a guarantee of availability of a rental. Renting or declining the rental membership does not affect one's position on the wait list.
Those \receiving the email should reply by March 1st if they are interested in obtaining a rental membership. No response is equivalent to declining a potential rental.
The business office will begin sending out rental applications via email in mid-March to those that have indicated their desire to rent. Rentals are offered based on one's position on the wait list. This process continues throughout the Spring until all rentals have been exhausted.
MEMBERS WISHING TO RENT OUT THEIR SHARE
Share owners wishing to rent their shares may elect to have their membership rented if they wish to retain ownership but do not plan to use the facilities. When a member chooses to rent their share, no dues are owed to the club for that season but a $75 rental fee is due by March 5th.
The member must notify the Club in writing, by mail by March 5. After March 5, a membership can still be rented, but written authorization to rent must be accompanied by the appropriate rental fee and late fee ($125 after March 5th and $150 after April 15th). Once the authorization has been submitted, the member may not use the club facilities for the remainder of the calendar year. The member will continue to receive the Club's regular mailings, including the annual Dues Statement. Note: Members may not designate renters, except in those cases where the member's primary residence is also being rented and the owner does not live in the DC metropolitan area.
MEMBERS WISHING TO SELL THEIR SHARE
To sell a membership, the member must locate the stock certificate issued at the time of purchase and if issued, your tennis key ($10 replacement fee if lost). Members who joined Vienna Woods prior to October 2001 need only the certificate dated October 16, 2001. On the back of the certificate are instructions for signing your membership over for sale.
The person(s) \listed as the owner (or owners) on the front of the certificate must sign and date the reverse side, in the presence of a witness. This need not be notarized. Leave blank the line to whom the membership will be transferred. Mail the signed certificate to: Vienna Woods, P.O. Box 33, Vienna VA 22183.
If one of the owners is deceased, the survivor needs to complete the above procedure and return the signed stock certificate along with a copy of the death certificate.
If the owner is unable to locate the stock certificate, he or she must then write a letter to the Club stating the following: He and/or she is the owner of share #____ and wishes to sell it but is unable to locate the stock certificate. The owner(s) will need to have the signatures on this letter notarized. This letter is accepted in lieu of the original certificate.
After the membership is transferred to a buyer, a check will be issued in the name(s) of the seller. The Transfer Fee of $30 and any outstanding dues or late fees will be deducted from the selling price before the check is issued. This process takes about 45-60 days.
IMPORTANT: Club By-Laws permit a member to sell their memberships directly only to the purchaser of their home or to an immediate family member. When this situation applies, the member must contact the Club's business office (email email@example.com or phone at 703-938-0005) to obtain the necessary paperwork for this transaction.
