try something like this:

Dim query As String = "spCreateBirthdayMailHouseFileASPForm"
Dim ID As Integer
Dim strConn As String = "<fill out conn string details here>"
Using conn As New SqlConnection(strConn)
  Using cmd As New SqlCommand(query, conn)
    cmd.CommandType = CommandType.StoredProcedure
    cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@EmailProfileName", Category.Text)
    cmd.Parameters.Add("@resultStatus", SqlDbType.Int, 0, "CategoryID")
    cmd.Parameters("@resultStatus").Direction = ParameterDirection.Output
    ID = cmd.Parameters("@resultStatus").Value
  End Using
End Using
