The American Legion, Department of Florida will be hosting its annual statewide convention July 5 – 8, 2018 at The Orlando World Center Marriott, Orlando FL. Approximately 3,000 American Legion members will be in attendance to include spouses and family members. Each year the state convention offers a wide variety of leadership training available to all members for the development and betterment of their local Post. The Department convention is not only a time where all posts gather to exchange ideas and reunite as a family; it is also a time where our members gather to elect the leadership for the new membership year and celebrate in the successes of the past membership year as it comes to a close. Please review this year’s tentative convention agenda to see all the exciting events planned and unique learning opportunities offered.
