Each person brings a wide variety of talents and ideas forth as we all work together to achieve an atmosphere of friendship and good will, while pursuing the worthy mission and vision of the ALA.

2017-2018 DEPARTMENT PRESIDENT

Melissa Burton

2017-2018 AMERICAN LEGION AUXILIARY NATIONAL PRESIDENT

Diane Duscheck

President Burton's theme is "Enhancing the American Legion Auxiliary (ALA) Experience." In goodwill and friendship, the Department of Kansas pledges to educate members, foster relationships, and promote the programs of the ALA in local communities. School is called into session with the membership theme this year: 1 Recruit + 1 Mentor = 2 Active Members. Be ready to experience school like you never have before! To see information about President Melissa and her President's project, click here. National President Duscheck's comments at National Convention were inspiring. She stated that to make a difference today and in the future, plant trees (seed) that you will never be able to see the shadow. (See Nelson Henderson quotation on sidebar.) We all must be patient to see the fruits of our labor blossom-kindness, honest, and fairness. In other words, we are building the foundation of our organization today, in order for it to flourish in the future.To view National President Duscheck's message click here.
