2020 DAV and Auxiliary National Convention

Out of an abundance of caution for the health, safety and well-being of members, their families, our guests and staff, DAV has made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 DAV and Auxiliary National Convention in Dallas, as a result of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

DAV has continued to monitor conditions and guidance over the past few months in the hopes that it would be possible to move forward with our most important annual gathering. However, based on guidance and feedback we’ve received from a variety of sources, we would not be able to effectively host an event that would allow us to complete our important business and ensure the safety of our veterans, Auxiliary members, families and other important guests.

DAV will issue updates to this page and use other channels to update our members. The organization will be hosting a digital event to recognize our volunteers and leaders while delivering important mission-related information. Understandably, as the national convention has only been canceled once before in our organization’s history, you may have questions concerning the status of normal proceedings and elections. Please visit this page for guidance on these and other issues.

DAV remains incredibly grateful for your understanding during this extraordinary time. For your continued safety, we encourage you to follow the instructions given by the CDC, and to keep reaching out to your fellow department and chapter members as a way to stay socially connected while maintaining physical distance.

We look forward to seeing you all next year at the 2021 DAV and Auxiliary National Convention in Reno, Nev.

Serving Veterans Since 1920


We are dedicated to a single purpose: empowering veterans to

lead high-quality lives with respect and dignity. We accomplish

this by ensuring that veterans and their families can access the

full range of benefits available to them; fighting for the

interests of America’s injured heroes on Capitol Hill; and

educating the public about the great sacrifices and needs of

veterans transitioning back to civilian life.



With the strength of 1.2 million members behind us,

we represent the voices of ill and injured veterans of all

generations before Congress.
