Every year, more than 750 Legionnaires across the nation are elected to serve as a district commander. Among the many duties of a district commander, they are the liaisons between posts and departments, responsible for relaying information through both levels. This ongoing communication ensures that The American Legion operates as a national entity.
The American Legion's Membership Division is hosting a training course for 2018-2019 incoming district commanders during the 100th National Convention in Minneapolis.
The Incoming District Commanders Training is Monday, Aug. 27, at 9 a.m. in the Marquette IV - VII, Second Floor, at the Hilton Minneapolis, 1001 Marquette Avenue South.
Topics will include post analysis, district revitalization, MyLegion.org overview, centennial celebration, and the strategic plan for membership growth at the district and post levels. Leading candidate for 2018-2019 American Legion national commander Brett P. Reistad of Virginia will provide remarks.
