If Dues are not paid by December 31, then you will become a lapsed member and cannot attend meetings until your dues are paid
This is where we grow our numbers. Awards are offered to Auxiliaries and to members for signing up new members each year. • Mentoring - Mentoring to new members (or newly active members) is an important part of our organization. Any member who works to teach others about the workings of the organization is a Mentor. Mentors are needed at all levels, to share the information we have learned over the years, and to help new members understand our workings.
Do you wonder why membership is a primary focus for our organization? One of the reasons is though we are on the Auxiliary side of the VFW family, our membership numbers count when the VFW goes to Capitol Hill to fight for veterans’ rights. Our membership numbers, added to the VFW membership numbers, shows the 116th Congress that we mean business when it comes to fighting for veterans’ rights. Along with bringing in new members, it is so important to pay your dues to keep the organization’s membership numbers up so that members of Congress will listen when the VFW goes to Capitol Hill to state our concerns.
