New Members
 
 
Membership information is available online. To join our Post specifically--which is less expensive than joining as an at-large member--contact us or call Quartermaster David Staehlin at 651-705-6045.  Or, you can read this information sheet and complete and print out this membership application. Then simply send the application, your proof of eligibility, and dues payment to us and we'll do the rest.
 
Renewing Members
 
 
For renewing members, dues must be paid on or before your current dues expire in order to maintain continuous membership by having no gaps in membership. You can always pay early and your membership will be extended one year from the date of expiration.
 
If your membership has been expired for less than one year, go ahead and renew and your re-instated membership will be effective immediately.
 
If your membership has been expired for one year or longer, you'll need to re-apply. Please do so as we'd be happy to welcome you back! Be sure to read the membership application instructions.
