Public Relations and Information Exchange are primarily about the Image of The American Legion.

At every level, it is our job to inform, enlighten, persuade and convince our members, the media, local and national elected officials, community members and U.S. citizens about who we are and what we do.

OUR MISSION:

Every year, posts provide assistance to veterans and their families, conduct fundraisers, sponsor sports teams, assist in community programs in time of need just to name a few. All which should be shared with the local Media to tell our story.

If they are not shared, The American Legion has NO image in your area.

The award will be given to recognize the winning submission of Posts achievements based in their membership levels and local Media Source supporting The American Legion image in any area that they serve.
