The Department of North Carolina, through it's Leadership Development Committee, held it's first "Legion College" in the summer of 1985. The 2023 Legion College will be held July 21-22, 2023 at the Village Inn in Clemmons, NC.
The program enhances knowledge and appreciation of The American Legion, and it teaches the core values and contributions of the organization, the American Legion Auxiliary, Sons of The American Legion and many subordinate programs. The overall expertise gained during the classroom and small group sessions prepares young Legionnaires for leadership positions in posts, districts, counties and departments through education, development and motivation. The curriculum challenges the upcoming leaders to think critically and creatively about issues confronting the Legion.
Department Legion staff and past Legion College graduates lead students through a number of classroom lectures, as well as small group sessions, with an emphasis on management techniques and leadership skills necessary to increase visibility of Legion programs, growth in membership, and public awareness of the Legion and its corresponding organizations. Classes exist for Blue Cap Legionnaires; district, division and department officers; auxiliary members and SAL members.
It is recommended that all attendees receive the Covid Vaccine prior to attending.
