IMPORTANT NEWS AND INFORMATION
COVID Screening Questionnaire
The Department Commander has directed that the Legion will be going back to using the COVID screening questionnaire and doing temperature checks at
registration and entry to all meetings and events following the reported COVID incident at the 2nd Division Convention for the safe of our members.
Mask will be optional but recommended for everyone and those that are not vaccinated for their safety.

CONVENTION CALL LETTER
Agenda, Advance Registration and Certification of Delegates
Greetings fellow Sons,
Time is running out on our year. The last two Division conventions are this weekend. Soon it will be time for our Detachment convention and that is the main purpose of this message.
The Legion block of rooms for the state conventions is currently 300 short of our target. If we hold at this level, it could be very expensive. Anyone that is planning on going to the convention and reserving a room needs to do so before the end of the day Monday. This will have a dual effect. First, it will help satisfy the room block guarantee but it will also allow you to get the lower Legion block rates.
It is short notice but we need to have our Division commanders contact our District commanders who need to contact our Squadron and Squadron let their members that are planning on attending the convention know about this deadline.
Hopefully, by now you have seen that the social distancing restrictions have been eased at the hotel. All meeting rooms will be open to 100% occupancy and masks are optional. This should allow anyone who was hesitant about attending due to previous guidelines and restrictions a little more comfort to attend.
Finally, everyone should know what I am to mention. Membership. We have seen some improvement in membership but we
still have some work to do. Most of our Posts should be open and this means that we need to be reaching out to our members that
have not renewed yet. It would be a shame for so many to lose their continuous years of membership. I have said this before and I will
repeat it here. We brag about Texas, Now is the time to back up that bragging. If we put the effort in, we can still make our 100% goal for the
year and show how Texas can come through in the pinch.
I look forward to seeing everyone in Austin in July but until then, let's roll up our sleeves and get the work done.
For God and Country,
Sons of The American Legion
