Every year Virginia issues us that Bar card, good for one year only. Now they're switching to a permanent card. We're going to get a temporary card this Summer after we pay our dues and then they're going to give us the permanent one in December.
All I can say is that I hope it is pretty dang idestructible. The current cards are hard to tear, but after a year in my wallet the ink on them is pretty much destroyed. I need that new card every year.
