Final days to beat the national dues increase

Effective July 1, The American Legion’s national per-capita dues will increase from $18.50 to $23.50. Now is the time to renew or join to beat the $5 dues increase, and take advantage of the Legion's multiyear membership option. 

Over 30,000 American Legion members have selected the multiyear membership option to renew or join since its launch in early December 2023. The multiyear members locked in the current national per-capita rate of $18.50 for the next three membership years (2025-2027) to beat the $5 dues increase. You too can beat the dues increase by either selecting a one-year membership or a three-year membership before July 1.

Here’s how:
