How to Join

  • Flotilla Listing
  • The quickest and easiest way to join is to contact a flotilla near where you work, live, or boat. Just click on the "Flotilla Listing" heading above, and be directed to our Divisions and Flotilla listing page. Be sure to use the internal scroll bar to view flotillas from Division 1 through Division 12!

    Most flotillas have a Web site, so follow their link to get contact information. If the flotilla does not have a site, then follow Plan B, below!

  • Flotilla Finder
  • If you don't feel like crawling through the Flotilla Listing above, use our handy Flotilla Finder. Simply click on "Flotilla Finder" above, and be transported to a form where you may enter your ZipCode and receive a complete list of nearby flotillas.

  • Plan B - Contact the District Staff Officer for Human Resources
  • Our District Staff Officer for Human Resources has one goal in life – to sign you up to the Auxiliary. So, simply click here on DSO-HR, and complete your email. Please tell our officer (1) your full name, (2) your complete contact information, and (3) which flotillas (from the list) interest you.  You should hear back shortly.

    By the way, you can see whom you are writing to by checking out "Staff Departments, Human Resources", to the left.
