Post 1 Officers Attend American Legion College
Post 1 Officers 1st Vice Commander Chris Sam and Finance Officer and Post Historian Robert Finnerty attended the Minnesota Legion College from April 25-28 at Camp Ripley, Mn. There they learned the basics of Legion officers' Roles and Responsibilities, the roles of a post's Constitution and By-Laws in how the post conducts business, the basics of Robert's Rules of Order, and participated in workgroups with other Legion College students that wrote and voted on resolutions that address real-world issues affecting veterans and their families today. "It's a residential course so it's a bit of a commitment, but I highly recommend any Legion member or officer to attend if they get the chance. If you do get a chance to attend, be prepared to learn and participate as there is lots of useful information presented" Sam said. The students were presented with diplomas in a graduation ceremony with the keynote message given by Minnesota Department Commander Paul Hassing.
