Department Commissions
Department Commissions and their members are appointed by the Department Executive Committee (DEC). Commissions oversee specific areas of operation and specific programs of The American Legion directly linked to their Commission. Commissions report their progress to the DEC during executive committee meetings and through commission "call-ins" during the year. 

Committees, on the other hand, have members appointed at the Districts level and meet during conventions to hear reports from the commissions. Committee members vote on proposals made to or by the commission and make recommendations to delegates attending the convention.
