Yosemite Association Membership

Membership requires either a one-time Life Time Member Fee based on age or an annual subscription of $15 or a one-time Lifetime Member Fee of $60.

  • Online: You can complete the online form below and mail us a check for the amount of the Life Time Member Fee or the annual subscription of $15.

Member Note:
Anyone who has served on the USS Yosemite is eligible for “Regular Membership.”  The dues are either $15.00 a year or a  “Lifetime Membership” of a one-time fee of $60. We feel the “Lifetime Membership” is a better deal! The page provides details. Anyone supporting the Association’s objectives can be granted Associate Membership with the sponsorship of a regular member.  If you wish to be a part of our group – make it known to us.  We will find someone to sponsor you.  Many of us have been on other Tenders, some in the “Dixie” Class (Sister Ships).  We are happy to have a large Yosemite Family!  We look forward to seeing new faces.
