Fall Conference

The Fall Conference is one of our most important gatherings of the year. It is our annual school of instruction, discussion, camaraderie and we hope it’s the kind of event you can talk about when you return to your post home and your fellow Legionnaires.

Your attendance at the annual Fall Conference, shows your dedication to our great organizations and the four pillars of The American Legion.
