MEMBERSHIP DATA PROJECT
Post 91 started a new outreach to ALL members in order to ensure the Post has important information regarding its members. We have found that important details are missing for many members, which makes it very challenging for the Post to accomplish the following:
Communicate with Post Members
Properly Recognize Members
Know When Members Pass Into "The Post Everlasting"
Rest assured that the Post will safeguard this information and the American Legion NEVER sells nor shares your membership information to ANY outside organization. Your information is used only for American Legion purposes, of which you are a member. Without complete information it makes it difficult to provide the services our members have earned and understanding our Post demographics can assist in making a compelling proposition to those who we want to support our efforts for Veterans, the Community, Youth, and Nation.
Please contact Trish Wilson and Glenn Nemeth, who are leading this outreach effort (email@example.com)
