Leadership College

June 1-3, 2018 - Cloud County Community College, Concordia

At this year’s American Legion Leadership College there will be a Hands-On Class dealing with being taught by Bryan Page, Fifth District Vice Commander. If you are a Post Commander or Post Adjutant this is a prime opportunity to actually input and make changes to Members of your Post. PLEASE ensure you bring your laptop or iPad to get the full effect of the training. 

There will be a Representative from the Gaming Commission and the Alcohol Beverage Control Board to update us on the new laws and regulations dealing with pull tabs and liquor sells within your Posts. An uniformed Post is not a good situation.

We are working on Post Commander and Post Adjutant modules that hopefully be available by ALLC time. We will try and incorporate them with the training that Bryan will be conducting.

Cadet Law Academy

Now Open to Seniors

Application Deadline March 31, 2018 May 4, 2018

On June 10, up to 50 young Kansans will gather for the 48th annual Cadet Law Enforcement Academy session at the Highway Patrol Training Center in Salina. Sponsored by The American Legion, Legion Auxiliary and KS Highway Patrol, the Academy provides high school students an opportunity to learn methods employed to enforce city, county, state, and federal statues with the goal of instilling a better appreciation for those who enforce those laws.  The Academy is not a recruitment program for law enforcement.  Students attending past sessions have had a wide variety of backgrounds, interests, and career plans.  However many students considering careers in law enforcement, as attorneys, and government service have attended as a means to solidify their plans to pursue such careers. 
Open to both male and females, all applicants must be high school juniors or seniors with at least a C+ average scholastically and be physically capable of fully participating in all activities during the week long program. Instruction includes firearms and firing range safety, personal defense, law enforcement history and techniques, pursuit driving on a skid-pan under controlled conditions, practical emergency medical procedures, aircraft use in law enforcement (weather permitting), and the responsibilities of citizens regardless of age.
