MEMBERSHIP

VFW Auxiliary membership is our commitment to serve our Veterans. We belong so that we can be of benefit to the organization. We are the task force that serves our veterans and their families. It is an honor to be able to join the VFW Auxiliary. Our goal for the state of Texas is 100% + and each year it is a challenge. Sisters and Brothers, together we can achieve this goal. We have the fortitude, determination and zeal to do so. We break our work down into these very significant parts:

- Retention of current members

- Outreach to former members

- Recruitment of new members

The challenge in retention and outreach to former members is to be sure we are communicating all through the year with every member. Members need to know what we are doing and why. So, as you think of yourself as a membership promoter, remember it goes on all year long. We are working for high membership numbers in 2021- 2022 as well as all the years ahead.
