Post Operating Committees

To help advise the Commander and Executive Committee the Post may establish and define the work of Post committees.

With the Commander's consent, each chairperson selects at least two other members to serve on each committee and they will serve for an indefinite term at the discretion of the chairperson.

Through work on committees, our members provide the hard work needed for our Post's success as they plan, organize, communicate and implement the programs of our Post and The American Legion.

The Post Operating Committees are critical to increasing active membership. Committees within Our Post create a forum for members to pursue personal interests. They allow for the strengths and dedication of our members to shine.

Post members, like you, serving on committees can grow as productive post members and leaders. Committee work also functions as a very important training ground to develop the leadership skills and knowledge of the Legion, which future Post leaders need to succeed
