The 2017-2018 American Legion Consolidated Post Report (CPR) has been tabulated, and the results posted on www.legion.org/bythenumbers. The survey, which a post fills out to document its external activities from May 31-June 1 of each year, is collected by National Headquarters to help quantify – for Legion media, national leadership and more – the good that American Legion posts do in their communities every year.

The traditional due date for CPRs is July 1, but a low (61 percent) reporting rate led the date to be extended this year to Aug. 15. A final total of 8,649 posts submitted reports, a 66 percent rate.

The 2018-2019 CPR will be available later this year; posts can print and send in physical copies, or submit it via myLegion.org.
