Welcome !

Welcome to the American Legion Auxiliary, Department of New Jersey Web site

From the President

 I want to congratulate  the 146 Units that passed turn #2 (milestone 2 of 70 %) in membership.The more we renew, the more we can grow to support the mission of the American Legion Auxiliary. Thank you for all you do to support our Veterans and their families.

I also want to thank Ruby Cramer, Dept Leadership Chairman, and Doreen Gallagher, Dept Membership Chairman, for the excellent job  at our Leadership Rally. It has been several years since we held one separate from the Board Meeting, it was well attended. Which "Tator Sister" are you ?

Please keep in your prayers several of our Dept. Officers who are under the weather at this time.  I want to wish all of you a Happy and Healthy Valentine's Day, and to remember
all of the families who will not have their loved ones with them for this holiday.

Has your unit taken care of the 990 Form !! This is extremely important inorder for your unit to keep their Non-profit organization status.  If you need help contact the Dept Headquarters and they will give you information on who to contact.

You can find the The Dept Constituion & Bylaws, Standing Rules  A sample of a Unit Constituion and Bylaws and the National Constitution and Bylaws  - Just Added - Unit Handbook !!on the page "various documents" from which they can be downloaded .

NEW !! Folder for flyers from units concerning dinners, fundraisers, etc..
