Royal Canadian Legion
Branch 52 Kamloops BC

Kamloops Legion Branch 52

November is Election Month at Br. 52

This year Branch 52 will be electing a President, Vice-President, Secretary, and two 2-year Directors.

Serving on the Executive is an important position as it is the group that has the responsibility to oversee all of the operations of the Branch, including personnel, lounge operations, and annual campaigns such as Poppy, Bursaries, Poster & Literary, and much more. All of these programs are essential.

Serving on the Executive, you will be expected to attend the Executive and General meetings every month. The Executive meeting is where issues and concerns are discussed and brought forward to the General Membership. Most Executive members have a portfolio or program to co-ordinate, which are discussed and appointed by the President.

This is the time for you, as a member of the Branch, have the opportunity to step up to do your part to keep the Legion healthy and vibrant. Often the executive hear members make comments about the way the Branch is running; this is the time for you to stand up and bring your thoughts and ideas to a position that can make change.

If you would like to discuss the positions up for election, or to volunteer to run, please contact Branch 52.

The Kamloops Legion Executive plays a central role in the success of our local branch.
