Annually, the Americanism Commission of The American Legion national headquarters gets together with our department counterparts combining all the Americanism programs into a single conference. This conference focuses on sharing ideas, best practices, rolling-out program updates, and allows department program directors an opportunity to provide needed feedback to our national programs.

The Combined Americanism Conference consists of eight segments which occur as either in-person or virtual meetings. These conferences occur in September of each year. In 2022, there are three segments that will occur in-person including American Legion Oratorical, Boys State, and the American Legion Auxiliary Girls State. All other segments will occur virtually. Conference program agendas will be available early September.


The links below are for each segment, providing the agenda for the meeting, a recording of the online meeting, as well as any slide decks, videos, or other documents provided during the conference. Watch this page for updated agendas and conference links.
