Dues Renewal Deadline


The November December 2011 edition of the Confederate Veteran magazine is now in the nonprofit bulk mail system and should arrive at each member’s mailbox in the next week to ten days. This is the last copy of this fine periodical current members will receive if they do not pay their national dues for the period August 1, 2011 through July 31, 2012.

The cutoff date for timely submission of dues is a postmark date of Tuesday November 1, 2011 or earlier. It is not necessary for camps to waste their time and money to use overnight delivery, registered/certified, or even priority mail. First class mail postmarked November 1, 2011 will preclude SCV camps having to pay a $5.00 late fee for reinstating a current member.

As the Confederation discussed at the Montgomery Reuntion, the SCV has a goal of reaching active membership of 50,000 men by the time of the 2016 annual General Reunion is held. Now is the time to begin to make this goal a reality. The SCV needs to renew at least 90 % of its total membership this year by renewing every man who can possibly continue.
