Subscription dues are just like a magazine subscription. It gives you 365 days of membership in the VFW. With this being the first year that they are coming into effect it will be a process that we are not use to. The basic breakdown of what is going to happen is:

If you are an annual member and you pay your dues before Jan your expiration will be Jan 2015. If you pay after that date whatever day your dues are processed at National will be the new expiration date. Example would be that you send in your dues to National on 1 Feb 2015 and National processed them on the 15 Feb. Your new expiration date would be 15 Feb 2016.

At times the VFW Department of Wyoming does use a company to help us raise funds.  They should not ask for your account information, instead the will ask for a pledge, then send you a package in the mail, asking you to fulfill your pledge.

Any member can manage their own information: change address, renew membership, etc. by visiting the VFW National website and logging in (top right). Create an online account if you do not already have one. Once logged in click the Online Membership System (OMS) link. If you are identified as a Post Quartermaster you should some additional services available (Post QM Services) where you can manage your Post's membership information. If the system does not recognize you as a QM please contact your Department QM for assistance. Wyoming QMs email qm@vfwwy.org.
