Each American Legion post will have the opportunity to submit the name of the recruiter from that post who has signed up the highest number of new members for the membership year by the May target date. Department headquarters will supply certification forms to be completed by the post commander or adjutant and submitted to department headquarters by the May target date plus one week.
Department adjutants will determine the top new member recruiter for their respective department and certify the winner to National Headquarters, on or before the last day of May. The top new member recruiter, properly nominated and certified from each department, will be awarded a framed certificate noting his or her accomplishment. (See page 17 of the National Membership Awards Program Manual).
