The Internal Affairs Commission is charged with formulating and recommending policies, and with overseeing the implementation of adopted policies, relating to activities conducted within The American Legion organization.
Among its purposes are membership and post development, records administration, post-revitalization training, Sons of The American Legion, Legion Riders, Legion College, and special projects such as the Legion’s connection with country-music artist Michael Peterson.
The commission provides guidance and assistance to the national adjutant on necessary administrative operations, and also monitors legislative and other regulatory activities that can potentially affect Legion posts and departments, recommending appropriate courses of action.
