Unit Support Structure

In the spirit of Service, Not Self, there are many great works that the American Legion Auxiliary Department of New Mexico is involved in: The Fisher House, supporting the VA and Veterans homes, and also educating our youth in patriotism, leadership, good citizenship and knowledge of our government through our program the American Legion Auxiliary New Mexico Girls State.

Our unit support structure replaced the old quota system in 2018, asking for unit support amounts based on the membership of individual units versus the fluctuating students in their areas.

Key things to note:

  • The new program took effect for the in the 2017-2018 year session and is the current standard for the program.
  • We ask that every attempt be made to get unit support amounts turned into the Department office by April 1 of the program year.
  • Brackets were determined based on membership numbers from the February numbers of the previous session year. EX. 2019 session amounts determined by Feb 2018 membership numbers.
  • The support amounts were determined based on:
    • Set program costs such as mailings, facilities (meetings rooms and offices), and travel expenses (trailer to/from session)
    • Fluctuating program costs determined by the number of delegate/staff attendees such as housing, cafeteria, and incidental items such as copies, badges and other items to facilitate the event.
    • Please note that every effort is made by department to get in-kind donations for items and hold fundraisers where possible. If you have a great contact that might be able to help with in-kind items or donations please let us know as we would love to work with more New Mexico companies in supporting our program for the New Mexico youth.

If you have any additional questions we encourage you to reach out to any member of the ALA NM Girls State board.
