Are there membership requirements?
Aside from paying annual dues, there are no formal requirements for participation. Some of our members prefer to only attend the meetings for social connection. Other members volunteer to staff tables at veteran events, conduct presentations at veteran events, help plan and coordinate veteran events, and/or help veterans directly. Other unit members hold positions at MWAN. It is up to you how involved you want to be.
