National Dues Increase
American Legion National has elected to increase the National dues. Starting in January, 2016, the National dues will increase by $5, bringing the amount to $35; Post 1000. At the Department of Missouri Convention, July 9-12, 2015, the Resolutions Committee decided to set aside this resolution to increase Department dues until the Fall Convention, 2015.
It was explained to us like this: If a member or new member pays their dues before January, 2016, they would be paying the current dues rate. The increase would be after January, 2016.The increase in dues is because of declining membership and to meet current budgetary obligations.
I would encourage every member, except PUFL (Paid Up For Life), to renew their membership before the end of 2015, otherwise their membership dues will increase by $5, Nationally. Currently Post 95 membership dues are $28. Post 95 membership dues are the lowest in the 3rd District.
