Membership Renewal

The Membership year is January 1 to December 31 of each year. If your dues for the new year have not been received by January 1st, you are delinquent. If your dues have not been received by February 1st, your membership is suspended and you must be voted back into the Post by the membership. To avoid being delinquent, the Legion starts collecting dues for the new year in July. That gives members July through January (7 months) to get their dues paid without being suspended.

Please do not confuse when membership dues come due with the membership goals and target dates. Membership awards are generally based on current year status on June 1st of each year. This is not the date that dues should be paid. Please pay your dues before February 1st.
