The 2018 membership cards are in and we have started shipping them to the Posts that have certified. Most of the membership boxes are going out by UPS so watch for your delivery. One of the first things you will notice is the 2018 Membership cards are much longer, also national has redesigned the cards to allow more information to be provided on the card and the scanners at national will capture the data and update or add to a members record.
For those Post Adjutants out there that used the old template to print cards for new members, we have updated and posted the new template on the forms page in the Post forms section.
Post Adjutants will also notice that the section 1 & 2 of the membership cards do not fit straight in the 6 x 9 envelopes provided by Department, we have look at obtaining a longer envelopes but it will cause your postage rates to increase. Post Adjutant are asked to gently bend section 1 & 2 and the perforation without separating the two halves of the cards.
