The cost of membership in the Association of the U.S. Army will increase on Jan. 1, but members can take advantage of current rates through the end of December.
AUSA members, even those whose memberships are not close to expiring, can extend membership at the 2016 rates as long as they act before the end of the calendar year. The new membership term will begin at the expiration of the current term, meaning someone whose membership doesn’t expire until March 2017, and who renewed today for two years, would be a fully paid member through March 2019.
Extending membership at the current rate requires contacting the AUSA Member Support Center. The toll-free number is 855-246-6269.
Effective Jan. 1, AUSA’s two-year membership rate will be $40, a five-year membership will cost $75, and lifetime membership costs $400. The association will continue the $10 rate for ROTC and U.S. Military Academy cadets and enlisted members in the paygrades of E-4 and below.
Compared to the 2016 rates, the new rates are $10 higher for two-year memberships, $25 higher for five-year memberships, and $100 higher for lifetime memberships.
Membership rates for corporate and sustaining members will not change on Jan. 1.
