The 104th National American Legion Convention is over and our new National Commander is Daniel J. Seehafer from Wisconsin.  The Minnesota American Legion Riders donated $162,000.00 at the convention for the American Legion Legacy Scholarship fund.  Since the scholarship funds inception, the MN ALR has donated $1.6 million dollars.  This is the last year for the funds to be dedicated Nationally to the scholarship fund.

The National Delegation approved a $5.00 National dues increase.  The dues increase will be in effect with the 2025 membership cards.  This does not give Departments and Districts time to approve their increases in time for the 2025 increase.  Posts need to consider dues increases before Nationals April 2024 cutoff for submitting dues changes.  More information will be coming out from Department and District.

DEPARTMENT FALL CONFERENCE – Oct, 27-28, 2023 – St. Cloud, MN – Rivers Edge Conference Center:  ALL POSTS should have a representative attend this very informative conference.  Information shared at this annual conference is important to the future of our American Legion Family.  This is also a great opportunity to meet the next Leading Candidate for National Commander.  All American Legion, Auxiliary, Jr Auxiliary and SAL members are welcome!
