The National Convention Commission conducts regular meetings during the year to review materials and choose future Legion national convention cities from those that submit requests for proposals. This process provides an equal opportunity for all cities to be judged the same way during the initial review and site-visit process.
It is the commission’s desire to continue to attract new cities to host national conventions, providing Legionnaires and their families with pleasurable, memorable and meaningful experiences every year. Parades, concerts, special parties and more are worked out between the commission and local and regional entities. Cities are chosen several years in advance, so that the commission has plenty of time to plan an outstanding convention.
The Convention & Meetings staff coordinates the activities and programs of the national convention (including meetings, concerts, the parade, and more), as well as of the Spring and Fall Meetings in Indianapolis, each year.
