The Membership Workshop is an annual event held at the Sheraton Hotel in Indianapolis, Indiana. The Department of Michigan encourages new District Commander and/or new District Vice Commanders in charge of membership to attend this important workshop.
This event typically happens the end of July or the first week of August.
The department charters a bus that leaves from Lansing, the department headquarters, to take commanders or others down on Thursday. A visit to Emblem Sales and the National Headquarters is made to show participants the operations of The American Legion.
On Friday, schools of instruction are conducted on various topics concerning membership, recruitment, retention, and management.
Saturday morning more school of instruction and departure in the afternoon back to Lansing.
If you are not a district commander or alternate, please contact Department Adjutant Ron Runyan for information.
