New SAL University in the works

The SAL Member Training and Development Committee has been updating commander’s training, National Management Institute (NMI), adjutant training and developing a new NEC orientation class. They are also working on the new SAL University which will debut in spring 2024.

Committee chairman Mike Monserud said the application process to be considered for SAL University will begin after the national convention in Charlotte, N.C., Aug. 25-27. Candidates will have to have held a position no higher than detachment commander and must also complete American Legion Basic Training online and submit the certificate with the application.

“The class will be 2 ½ days long and will be busy with homework to be completed before you come to the training, to homework to work on at night while you are in Indianapolis for the training (at the Spring Meetings),” Monserud said.

Monserud is welcome to ideas for any training SAL members would like to see implements into SAL University.

“Also, if you would like some training sent to you, feel free to contact me as it does no good if we produce all this training, and then no one takes it back to their squadrons or detachments and uses it,” he said.
