Telling The Legion Story
Your story is uniquely yours and it’s a powerful one.  But, understanding how to tell it in a way that motivates others can be challenging.  Today, we are hit with as many as 5,000 advertisements and the brain can’t keep up.  So how do we stand out?  How does our message become memorable in the hearts and minds of the people we seek to influence?

This interactive journey will:

  • Provide important research into the changing behavior of the American consumer and how this directly impacts membership, donorship and more as it relates to The American Legion nationally and locally
  • Highlight some of the best brand stories and why big national brands do what they do to attract and keep their customers
  • Share with you the detail that led to the Legion Wisconsin brand and why it’s so important to the future of the organization
  • Give you tools to implement a powerful and welcoming message at the local level that can be a game-changer for the future of your Legion Post.  You will actually walk away with a road map to build stronger relationships and deliver powerful elevator speeches that get people to say “YES!”

(both schedules were updated 3/26/21- Per Nellie DeBaker, the Wisconsin Historian's Association meeting on Friday, and the Historian's Training on Saturday have been cancelled.)

On this day in 1919, The American Legion is federally chartered, which authorizes the as-yet unincorporated organization to proceed to the adoption of a constitution and bylaws, elect officers “and do all other things necessary” as outlined in U.S. Code, Title 36, Chapters 41-50. Under Chapter 43, “Purposes of corporation,” much of the language is borrowed from the original draft Preamble to The American Legion Constitution with some notable deviations, such as “to promote peace and good will among the peoples of the United States and all the nations of the earth” and “to cement the ties and comradeship born of service.” The original charter outlines the powers and authority of the organization, membership criteria, naming rights, exclusivity to manufacture and use The American Legion emblem, and a requirement that “the organization shall be nonpolitical and, as an organization, shall not promote the candidacy of any person seeking public office.” #AmericanLegionDay ...
