TriWest Attends 2022 American Legion National Convention as Emerald Sponsor
Phoenix, AZ (September 5, 2022) – The American Legion held its 103rd National Convention this year from Aug. 26 – Sept. 2 in Milwaukee, Wis., where TriWest Healthcare Alliance (TriWest) was honored to attend as an Emerald Sponsor.
The American Legion is the largest U.S. military Veterans organization and the national convention is its largest annual gathering with delegates from each of the Legion’s 55 departments attending. During the convention, delegates determine the Legion’s programming, set membership dues, and elect a national commander and install five national vice commanders to serve until the next convention.
These activities takes place during a week of attractions, performances, and important meetings designed around Veteran health, well-being, and quality of life.
“TriWest is proud to be a long-time supporter of The American Legion and its mission to enhance the well-being of America’s Veterans, their families, our military and our communities,” said Donna Hoffmeier, TriWest Sr. Vice President, Strategic Communications and Advocacy. “It was an honor to attend this year’s event and to engage with members of the Veteran and military communities and the outstanding Legion leadership and staff.”
This 2022 convention featured a packed agenda with meetings and workshops on topics including education benefits, Veteran employment, Veteran homelessness, and suicide prevention. Other convention attractions included a Hiring Our Heroes career fair, and bands and color guards from across the nation showcased their talents in contests and performances.
TriWest and the American Legion have a shared passion for supporting of our nation’s military members and Veterans. This shared passion for Veterans was highlighted at the 2021 national convention where The American Legion presented TriWest with the prestigious Large Employer of Veterans Award in recognition of its strong record and support of Veteran employment.
At the 2022 convention, TriWest was again proud to join with The American Legion in support and enthusiasm for the tireless work committed on behalf of our nation’s heroes.
