There is a new person in charge of membership in the Dept. Her name is Cassi Labarr (1-800-332-6632). She is very helpfull. If you have any questions about membership give her a call. Her email cassi@nylegion.org

Who Can Join?

We invite anybody interested in attending these monthly meetings to: Be appointed as a delegate or as an alternate by your post, who then informs the county executive board of your right to attend, represent your post, and to vote in an official capacity.



County Officers are required to attend both monthly and executive board meetings; ie. Cmdr; Vice Cmdr; Adjutant, Chaplin,etc.

Benefits of Joining

There are several benefits to becoming a member of our organization. Our members are close friends and we have a great time when we get together. Of course we also have a common interest, and we hope to further our cause.
