How do I become a new Auxiliary member?
The application form (Application Form) must be printed clearly and completely. Please pay particular attention to the eligibility section. Submit the application, $35.00 annual dues, and a copy of your veteran's DD-214 (discharge papers) to the address listed below. If your veteran is living, he/she must be a current member of the American Legion, any post. Please include the name of the post, city and state of which the veteran is a member. New members must be voted in at the next regularly scheduled meeting. We strive to process all applications by month-end but sometimes a new member may not be voted in until the following month due to our processing time cut-off dates.
How do I renew my dues?
Our dues are $35.00 per calendar year and there is no pro-rating of dues. We are on a fiscal-year basis and new members who join us after September 1st receive a membership card that is good immediately and for all of the upcoming year. Existing members' dues are payable as of September 1st and we encourage everyone to pay their dues online by using a credit card. This is done by visiting the National American Legion Auxiliary website: www.ALAforVeterans.org. Renewals can also be paid by bringing in or mailing a check to our post, address listed below. Whether paying online or by check, we will mail your new membership card to your current address on file. The membership team is at the post weekdays from 10am - noon.
Here are some other points to remember:
- Your current membership card is valid at all American Legion Posts throughout the country.
- Please notify us of any address, email or phone number changes. Providing us with a current email address is important as that is how we’ll keep you informed. Use this form for any changes: Member Data Form
- Lamination is available in the Post hall for your membership card and replacement cards can be requested should yours become lost, there is a small charge for each service. Keep your card in a safe place and remember that only you can use your card.
- Members who wish to transfer from another unit may do so providing that they are in good standing. Complete a "Member Data Form" from your current unit, include a copy of your current membership card and send it to us. You can find the data form here: Member Data Form
