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.
