ALLSTATE

ALL-STATE POSTS CRITERIA:

 

Within a department, the most effective measure of whether a post fully meets its requirements is
selection by the Department Commander as an All‐State post. The designation means the post is
fully meeting all national and department guidelines in membership and the implementation of
VFW programs. Commanders and Quartermasters of posts selected All‐State will receive an All‐
State pin, citation, and cap. Each All State Entry form will be judged based of a Point‐System
criteria. The Captain of the All State Team will be awarded to the Post with the most points,
Commanders seeking All‐State status must complete listed requirements and submit an entry
form (supplied) to the Department Headquarters by 7 May 2021, only the top 15 Post and
Districts will be selected for the All State Team. Qualifying membership activity and program
items must be completed on or before that date. All‐State selections will be made in suf􀏐icient
time to allow post members to plan for attendance at the state convention in late June. NOTE: If
total number of All State is NOT 15 Posts then, Posts that meet all 􀏐inal applied criteria after 7
May of current year but before June 30 current year will also be considered to receive recognition
as All‐ State, but not necessarily receive caps, citations, and pins at the state convention; for those
posts, recognition will be provided at the August Council of Administration.
To clearly recognize the most deserving posts, there is a practical limit to the number of posts
that should be selected. For 2020‐2021, the department will apply primary requirements and, if
necessary, supplemental criteria. All posts completing primary requirements will be considered
for All‐State. If the resulting number is too large to adequately separate the most deserving posts
from others, secondary criteria will be applied.
