Please Ignore Those Notices from the American Legion Regarding your Membership Dues.

The American Legion recently changed the computer program they use to track memberships and it has caused another computer program to go haywire and  and send everyone multiple late notices regardless of whether they have paid their dues or not.  Remember, your  2021 dues cover the entire calendar year, so you're not late if you haven't paid.  At the post level, we know who has paid and who hasn't.

Is this a SNAFU or a FUBAR?
