119th VFW National Convention

Every year, thousands of VFW and Auxiliary delegates gather to represent the organization’s total membership of nearly 1.7 million at the weeklong convention. While there, our mission is to approve new national priorities to guide our organization as we lobbies Congress on issues important to the nation’s veterans, service members and their families. Convention delegates also elect new leadership, as well as recognize prominent individuals and organizations for their support of veterans and military personnel. Save the date for the 2018 national convention, which will be held in Kansas City, Mo., July 21-25, 2018. The 118th VFW National Convention was held July 22 – July 26, in New Orleans.

VFW Legislative Conference

Since 1949, VFW’s annual Legislative Conference has provided an opportunity for VFW leaders from each state to personally lobby their respective lawmakers and watch as VFW’s current Commander-in-Chief testifies on Capitol Hill before the House and Senate Veterans’ Affairs Committees on behalf of veterans. Guest speakers are invited to address conference delegates, and since 1964 the VFW’s Congressional Award has been presented annually to one sitting member of the House or Senate for their significant legislative contributions on behalf of those who have worn the uniform. Also at the event, the winners of the Voice of Democracy and Patriot’s Pen scholarship contests are announced. Each national winner reads their winning essay before conference delegates and are presented with their winnings. The 2018 Legislative Conference is scheduled for March 4 – 7, 2018.
