The Department of Virginia Leadership College is designed too ensure attendees receive the mentoring and training necessary to return to their Posts, Units, Squadrons and American Legion Riders Chapters with the knowledge and enthusiasm to promote and develop American Legion Family Programs.

The Leadership College is organized into tracks. We have a track for the American Legion Auxiliary, a track for the Sons of the American Legion, a track for the Virginia American Legion Riders, a Program track for the basic/core Virginia American Legion programs. Attendees are able to cross-over between tracks to take specific classes that are of interest to them. Attendees who complete the tracks will receive a Virginia Leadership College diploma and pin with year bar.

The aim is to prepare attendees to easily answer questions about the American Legion Family and to have a good understanding of who is eligible, who we serve and why our organization exists.

Who should attend?

  • All new members of the American Legion, American Legion Auxiliary, and Sons of the American Legion.
  • All new Post/Unit/Squadron and District Officers and Committee Chairman.
  • All new or current members of the Virginia American Legion Riders.
