Department Membership Incentives 2021-2022

The American Legion Department of Michigan’s Membership Committee presents the 2021 Membership Incentive Program.  Membership within our organization has been on the decline, and it’s up to all of us to make a commitment to turn this slide around.  This year the Membership Committee is taking a fresh approach to membership.



Post Adjutant's, are you using to process post membership?

Avoid delays when processing membership, save on postage and send membership straight to national through the portal with online transmittal processing.

The MyLegion portal is the place post adjutants can edit information about members, find members-at-large in the area, track online renewals, and process membership.

To learn more about watch the below training video.
