Subject: Dues Processing Announcement
Attention All Department and Post Officers,
The $10 Dues increase, the implementation of Subscription Dues and a new December 31 Membership contest, have combined to result in thousands of members waiting until the last minute to send in their 2014 dues. We have everybody we can processing these dues and are working overtime to get caught up but the large numbers of renewals will require several days to process. We have posted a message on OMS that we will be down until January 13th. We should improve on that date as we work through the backlog and we will update that message as possible. We also have placed a message on the website for members who try to renew online to please try again in a few days. In the meantime, please know that we are doing everything we can and will be back to normal very soon. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
Yours in comradeship,
VFW of the U.S.
