2013 Legion College



National American Legion College

The 2013 session of Legion College will run October 27th – November 1st.  The National American Legion College is a combination of lectures, small group workshops and practical exercises.  Students will receive training in leadership, sales and marketing, communication, and fundraising.  Focus is on self-taught small group sessions under the supervision of graduate facilitators, national staff members and national officers. Major emphasis is placed on core programs, management techniques and the development of leadership skills necessary to increase visibility of programs, growth in membership and public awareness of The American Legion, the American Legion Auxiliary and the Sons of The American Legion.

This year the National organization is looking for Legionnaires with military service during the Lebanon/Grenada or subsequent eligibility periods.  The Department of Wisconsin sponsors up to three Legionnaires to attend National American Legion College.  The National American Legion College Selection Committee will review the applications and select the 50 best-qualified attendees. Once the students are selected, the National American Legion staff will contact them directly several weeks before the class begins regarding housing, transportation and all the materials they will need.

The deadline for submitting applications is July 15th.  The Department Adjutant or Department Commander must endorse each candidate’s application.  Anyone interested in attending should contact Department Adjutant David Kurtz at or (608) 745-1090.
