Did you know that you can now call national headquarters to pay your dues? The number to call is 317- 569-4500. They will help you especially if you have multiple members that you are paying for. I did this, and it was quick and easy to pay for my additional members.
Anyone can access www.alaforveterans.org. At the top of the site is a “join” tab. Fill out the application and pay. Every department (state) has their dues listed there. New members would become a part of ND Unit 500, and then can be transferred to their desired unit. This is a great help because, if you are talking to someone and you would like them to join, you can have them sign up right at that time. I put the website as an app on my phone and hope to use this feature many times.
