District Spring Conferences
The spring conferences for the Districts in Iowa will begin
with the Fifth District conference on March 24. That will be a special
conference due to the visit from National Commander Rohan that morning.
The conferences are much more than visits from dignitaries. Election of the
District Officers for the coming year will take place at those conferences as
will selection of delegates to the National Convention.
This will be a special National Convention since it is the
100th convention of The American Legion and will take place in the same city as
the first convention, Minneapolis. Not just the place makes it special though,
since there will be many events focused on the centennial of The American
Legion. If you want to go as a delegate, getting that selection at your District
Conference is the first step. Make sure you attend and learn what your
district has been doing this year.
