There are three types of membership in the BLET Auxiliary, as outlined below. The number of auxiliaries applying for Charters is growing, and in an ideal world, there would be an auxiliary in every town and every part of the country. We are working towards that goal, and will continue growing until we attain it. The more auxiliaries that are established all over the country, the greater our ability to support not only the BLET Division members, but our fellow Auxiliary members. The larger our communication and mobilization networks, the greater our voice.
Benefits of Membership
In addition to becoming part of a progressive and involved organization,
members also receive a quarterly newsletter containing reports of activities
from auxiliaries throughout the country, legislative updates, articles of
interest to our members, and articles for our retired members.
Other benefits include eligibility for our scholarship program, and
inclusion in our mobilization program for full members.
The spouse, widow, widower, mother, father, daughter or son (18 years or
older) of a member of the BLET is eligible for membership in the BLET Auxiliary.
Any one listed above, who is interested in joining our organization may
attend a regularly scheduled meeting of their local auxiliary.
Each auxiliary meets at least eight (8) times per year, and dues are set
by each auxiliary, to be not less than $25 for retirees, widows and widowers, or
$50 for those not yet of retirement age, for National Dues used to support the
Auxiliary and our programs.
A Member at Large membership is offered for those meeting the membership
qualifications, and wishing to join the organization, but who do not have an
auxiliary established in their area. These
members are also part of our network, and attend meetings at the regional
conventions held every year in various parts of the country.
Dues for Members at Large are $50 per year for those not yet of
retirement age, and $30 for retirees, widows and widowers.
An Associate Membership is offered for those interested in participating
in the work of the auxiliary, but who do not meet the requirements of
membership. Associate members may
be members of Auxiliaries or Associate Members at Large.
National Dues for Auxiliary Associate Members and Associate Members at
Large are $50 per year.
