Membership Committee Purpose:

The purpose of the Membership Committee is to promote an increase of membership in the Department, to ascertain the causes for failure of former members to renew their membership, and generally, to assist the Posts in a program working toward increasing the numerical strength of the Department. Also, to recommend programs to Posts for the promotion of such activities as would stimulate interest in The American Legion and its programs in all communities. The Committee meets 4 times a year, at the Department Fall Meetings, Midwinter, Department Spring Meetings and the Department Convention.
