2020 Membership Dues increase Notice

The American Legion Department of Arizona Executive Committee, on advice of the Department Finance Committee and Membership Committee has authorized an American Legion Dues increase of $1.00 for each of the next five years for the Department of Arizona. 
This measured increase is in planning for the next increase of National Dues expected on the horizon, as we move into our next 100 years.  

The increase for 2020 goes into effect, July 15, 2019.  Post Transmittals that are submitted by December 31, 2019 will be honored at the current rate of $27.00. Transmittals after January 1, 2020 are to be made at the new $28.00 rate.  The authorized increase of $1.00 will continue for each of the next 4 years, with starting dates of July 1 each year, in accordance with the authorization. For example, July 1, 2020 the new rate to transmit to Department/National will be $29.00. Ju1y 1, 2021 increase again to $30.00 and so forth.

Please direct questions in writing to hdqtrs@azlegion.org.  Also, notices will be sent to Post leaders during this “ramp-up” period to assist Posts in alerting their members of the change and hopefully renewing by 12/31/2019.  Some newer members will need to be reminded that The American Legion Membership year is Calendar-based. And, that we begin our renewal cycle 6 months early in order to provide our members plenty of time to renew and possess their ID Card for the entire January through December period.
