    Dept. to Absorb Part of National Dues Hike

    With the National Convention approving a national dues increase of $5, the Department of New York will absorb $2, resulting in an overall increase of $3, effective Jan. 21, 2016.

    Posts will be able to earn an additional $1 back per regular member upon achieving membership equal to their 2015 total plus five additional members. Paid-up-for-life (PUFL) members will count toward achieving this incentive total, but will not qualify to get $1 back.

    Posts set the dues amount for members. If a post wishes to increase its dues to reflect the change at the national level, a post data form may be submitted through Department of New York to National Headquarter (the sooner the better, but no later than Nov. 9).

    For more details, see the letter to posts and the data form. (The form is fillable if opened in Adobe Reader.)
