Manage Your Membership
Already a member? Changes to your roster? Want to renew? After logging in, your company's Main POC can add, delete, edit their designees or donate unused designee spaces to their chapter.
Sustaining Member Donation Program – AUSA Needs your help!
In an effort to increase our total membership, we ask that your company donate any unused designee spots to your local chapter so that the chapter can then give these donated memberships to active Army Soldiers and DoD civilians. It is a great way to say "Thank you!".
