The Department of North Carolina, through it’s Leadership Development Committee, held it’s first “Legion College” in the summer of 1985. The 2020 Legion College will be held July 10-11, 2020 at the Red Lion Hotel in High Point, NC. This year’s session will include a banquet on Friday evening. Registration form for Legion College can be found here.
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.

Classes exist for Blue Cap Legionnaires; district, division and department officers; auxiliary members and SAL members.
