Subj:   Official National Judge Advocate Ruling on Membership Dues

Encl:   (1)  Membership Process

Background.  Recently, a Marine Corps League member in good standing requested a ruling concerning the Membership Dues.  The member stated that on page 10, of the Summer 2017 edition of the “Semper Fi” magazine, stated the following:

Members who join between July – December

            Pay $25.00 and expiration date will be September 1 (of following year.)

            Example: Member who joins July – December 2017 will expire in September 1, 2018.

Members who join between January – June.

            Pay $15.00 and expiration date will be September 1 (of following year.)

            Example – Member who joins January – June 2018 will expire in September 2018.

The member stated that this was in violation of our National Bylaws and should be corrected.

The above was in fact against the National Bylaws.

ALL DETACHMENTS – PLEASE READ THE ENTIRE RULING IN THE ATTACHMENT AND ENSURE COMPLIANCE.

Respectfully Submitted,

Johnny Baker

National Judge Advocate
