Non-Hereditary Membership (Associate)

Men who do not have the ancestry to qualify for hereditary membership may become Associate Members if they can; demonstrate a genuine interest in the Spanish American War, the Philippine Insurrection, or the China Relief Expedition; and can subscribe to the purpose and objects of the Sons of Spanish American War Veterans.

An Associate Member may vote and hold any office in Camps except those of the President, Senior Vice President, Junior Vice President, National Secretary, and National Treasurer. Associates may not exceed one-third of the total membership of a Camp at the time of election.
