POST 501 LEADERSHIP (updated 4/2018)
Please come to the Legion membership meeting, May 9th, to participate in the annual election of Post leadership. This is one of the most critical meetings of the year. It is your opportunity to speak out and nominate/elect our leadership for the next 12 months. If you can make only one meeting per year, let it be this one. We need your votes. Installation of these newly elected officers will occur at the next meeting, Wednesday, June 13th. Be here to show your support for and honor those who have volunteered to assume the responsibility of guiding our Post 501 for the next year. This is another "must" meeting to attend.
The Legionnaires who occupy leadership positions at Post 501 are the heartbeat of keeping the goals of our American Leadership moving forward. Their responsibility for their offices is critically important to insuring that the needs of the veterans, their families and for all youth are kept foremost in mind. They also are responsible for the daily operation of Post 501. Leadership requires a bit of dedication, and effort beyond the normal call of everyday membership. Positions are either elective, or nominative, installed on an annual basis. Young Legionnaires are encouraged to apply, and work their way into higher positions, as their time allows.
Nominations of officers for the upcoming year, need to be submitted at the April post meeting. Elections will be held the following post meeting in May. Installation will follow in the June Post meeting. To have your needed input on leadership for Post 501, please attend these next 2 very critical meetings. This will ensure that Post 501 is best working for veterans, to include yourself.

At Post 501's member meeting last June 14, 2017, Cdr. Stolarczyk called the incoming officers to the front of the Hall. Cdr. Stolarczyk introduced the installing Officer, Cdr. Gary Dobson of Post 279. Cdr. Dobson then began the installation by reading the requirements of the various positions. He then led in the Oath of Office for the officers of the coming year. This was followed by the informing of each officers of the duties of their position. The Installing Officer then introduced the newly installed officers to the Post. Post 501 will have this same procedure implemented this next election. Only the names of the Leadership will change.
Elections are held in May of each year. Post 501 membership needs for each of you to step up, at least for one year.
