With the cancellation of the 2020 Sons of The American Legion National Convention, the terms of currently serving national officers, including SAL National Commander Clint Bolt, have been extended one year.
Bolt and other national officers will serve until the 2021 National Convention, scheduled for Aug. 27-Sept. 2, 2021, in Phoenix. That decision coincides with the extension of terms of American Legion national officers, approved by resolution of the National Executive Committee.
The convention cancellation and extension of national officer terms are within the authority of the National Executive Committee, according to The American Legion’s constitution and bylaws.
The 2020 SAL National Convention was scheduled for Aug. 28-Sept. 3 in Louisville, Ky., along with The American Legion’s 102nd National Convention. Both events, along with other Legion events nationwide, have been canceled due to public health concerns, ongoing restrictions and uncertainties related to the global COVID-19 pandemic.
