2017 MEMBERSHIP TOTAL / GOALS
"To oversee the nationwide effort to recruit and sustain a diverse, active membership and establish new units to ensure the future growth and prosperity of the organization; to promote the benefits of membership in the American Legion Auxiliary and encourage department chairmen to coordinate their membership programs with units in their respective states with the aims and purposes of the organization."
Membership and the 2014-2019 Centennial Strategic Plan – By living our values, the members of the National Membership Committee encourage and support the nationwide effort to attract, engage and retain a diverse, active membership – person by person – to ensure the future of the American Legion Auxiliary. (Goals 1 – 5)
What is this program, and why do we have it?
The role of the National Membership Committee is to encourage and support the nationwide effort to attract and retain a diverse, active membership and establish new units to ensure the future of the American Legion Auxiliary. Members enable us to carry out our mission to assist veterans, military, and their families.
National Membership Vision
By honoring our veterans and military through meaningful service, the American Legion Auxiliary will grow membership by our centennial anniversary. In order to grow the organization, we must let members know that they are the Auxiliary’s most valuable asset.
Note: Our centennial anniversary will be celebrated during the 2019-2020 administrative year.
“Success is not achieved in one day; it is achieved by doing the right things every day.”
