National HQ offers 3-year memberships

By Tim Engstrom

INDIANAPOLIS — More than 8,000 American Legion members have taken advantage of the new multiyear membership option for renewals and new joins. Ready to lock-in a three year membership before the national per-capita dues increase goes into effect? It’s easy. Here’s how:

• For renewals, visit and select the three-year membership option.

• For new joins, visit and select the three-year membership option.

“We have wanted this multiyear option for our members, and now that it’s here, the excitement for it shows in the number of Legionnaires who have taken advantage of it,” National Membership & Post Activities Committee Chairman Matt Jabaut said. “The multiyear membership option saves members from receiving renewal notices every year, and it’s another great benefit to being an American Legion member.”

The American Legion’s national per-capita dues will increase from $18.50 to $23.50 starting with the 2025 membership year. The $5 increase will go into effect July 1, 2024.

The Department of Minnesota is expected to increase dues by $3 at its convention this summer. Some districts are going up $1 or $2. The multiyear memberships only are available from the national website,
