The success of any organization depends largely upon the skill and competence of its leaders. Auxiliary members are concerned with developing present and future leadership within the organization. Comprehensive training courses and materials are offered in every Auxiliary Department and by the National organization. Courses focus on fundamental management and communication skills and outline the basic responsibilities and leadership opportunities which are available within the many programs of the Auxiliary. Units and Departments conduct leadership workshops with motivational speakers to increase enthusiasm for all Auxiliary programs. Every Auxiliary member is urged to learn more about the programs of the American Legion Auxiliary. Knowledge of the organization enhances member participation in support of Unit programs.
