The Association of the U.S. Army is offering a new no-cost membership option to soldiers, family members and anyone interested in supporting and learning more about America’s Army.

This free Basic Membership is designed to give those who haven’t yet joined the Army’s professional association a chance to become a member at no cost and see firsthand what AUSA does in support of the world’s most powerful land force.

Retired Gen. Bob Brown, AUSA president and CEO, said this is also an opportunity for AUSA to grow. “Membership matters. The more people we have, the more we can help soldiers,” he said, describing Basic Membership as a game changer. “We will be able to reach more people in our mission to educate, inform and connect, while providing outstanding professional resources to soldiers at every level in their careers.” 

Basic Membership creates an opportunity to know AUSA before buying a Premium Membership. Basic members will receive many benefits from the association, including access to AUSA events, professional networks, AUSA Jobs Central, podcasts, newsletters and discounts and deals for travel, entertainment, shopping and more.

Premium members, who pay for membership, get basic benefits plus a copy of ARMY magazine, the association’s flagship professional development publication, and discounted registration and tickets to key AUSA events. Premium members also can apply for more than $340,000 in scholarships each year for themselves or their dependents.

They also receive access to AUSA’s digital publication archives and LawAssure, a free online service to create high-quality legal documents including wills, health care directives or powers of attorney. 

Premium Memberships are $30 for two years, $50 for five years or $400 for a life membership for a limited time, through Oct. 31.

All AUSA members are invited to join their local chapter, participate in advocacy campaigns and use their member discounts.

Introduction of the new Basic Membership coincides with the AUSA Annual Meeting and Exposition, which will take place Oct. 10–12 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C.

“There is no better time to roll out this new membership than during the 2022 AUSA Annual Meeting, our premier event of the year, where we showcase the many ways AUSA supports our Army,” Brown said.
