Attention all AMVETS Riders:
Many of you have heard that AMVETS Riders members who are AMVETS Ladies Auxiliary will be required to register with their parent organization (Ladies Auxiliary) before registering with the Riders for convention in the future.
It is already and has been a requirement for those who are AMVETS to register with their parent organization.
In following this requirement, it will now be required for Auxiliary members to register with the Ladies Auxiliary.
Lady AMVETS Riders who are Auxiliary members will need to show proof of Auxiliary registration when checking in at the Riders registration desk.
We always encourage all AMVETS Riders members to support their parent organization and attend those meetings as well as the meetings of the AMVETS Riders while at convention.
The rule will not only apply to National convention but for your SECs as well.
Please see below rule from AMVETS National Ladies Auxiliary Executive Director.
Please extend this information to all of your AMVETS Riders members who are Ladies Auxiliary.
Below is the change to the National Auxiliary Standing Rules at the 2018 National Convention in Orlando, Florida.
PAGE 19 CONVENTION RULES
MAKE NEW #5 TO READ:
The NATIONAL AMVETS CONVENTION RULES requires that all subordinate organizations members register as a delegate with the parent organization therefore, Auxiliary Rider members and Sackette members must register as an Auxiliary delegate or guest and must show an Auxiliary registration in order to register as a Rider or Sackette delegate. DIRECTIVE FROM NATIONAL AVMETS – DOES NOT NEED VOTE

Hello Riders Nation!
Please take a minute to read this and pass on accordingly. There is now a link on the National web page regarding IRS 990 tax filings. As stated in the unified CBL, it is each Chapter and Department individual responsibility to keep a current status and turn in a copy of said status with your revals each year. However, if you need help feel free to contact me. My contact information can be found on the website under officers.
The information can be found under the publications tab under Elections and Revalidations: https://www.amvetsridersnational.org/publications.html
All requirements are to be met and followed through yearly to avoid any more issues regarding IRS and Chapter/Dept status.
Please take this seriously as it is an annual duty. Revals MUST be complete upon submission.
Thanks for your attention to this matter. I hope this helps and avoids any further confusion.
