Are you a new Legion officer? Welcome to

As elections for the 2021-2022 membership year are underway, newly elected adjutants and commanders at the post, squadron, county and district level will have access to the administrative side of through their individual account. This access occurs as soon as officers are reported and entered into The American Legion national membership database. Reporting of officers is done through the department using the department’s officer certification form.   

If you have a account, there is nothing more that you will need to do upon your elected officer position. If you have not registered for a account, please follow the steps on page 4 so you can access the membership tools available to you as an officer. 

Please remember that as of April 1, all accounts are individual accounts with a single sign-on. Each registered user will have one profile. When you have been updated as an adjutant or commander and log into, you will still have access to your personal membership data in MY ACCOUNT but the MY GROUPS tab will now appear. Post, district, county, detachment and squadron officers will see additional officer tools under MY GROUPS to manage membership and have full access to electronic rosters. 

Even though sharing of credentials is no longer available, administrative officers have authority to assign MY GROUPS permission to others who have their own account. Information about assigning group permissions is available in Online Help at under the MY GROUPS tab. 

My Groups provides the capability to:

- Export and print electronic membership roster.

- Email members. ​

- View and edit member information​.

- Access membership functions such as view members; see members renewed online; do a global member lookup; access reports and labels; process membership; and manage Consolidated Post Reports and Consolidated Squadron Report.
