** New this year is our Women Veterans Coalition meeting on Thursday January 12, 2023 at 4:00pm in Chatauqua Salon B. Please indicate on the registration form if you plan to attend. You can visit the Women Veterans Coalition page for more info.

** We are already hard at work preparing the information and training materials needed by your chapter members to be successful in our single purpose – empowering veterans to lead high-quality lives with respect and dignity. We hope to see all chapters present to take advantage of this opportunity to learn as well as share helpful information with others.

Some of the class topics will include:
~ Constitution and Bylaws – A Better Understanding
~ Robert’s Rules – How Does It Work?
~ Fundraising – The Do’s and Don’ts for Success
~ Adopted Department Initiatives – What’s New?
~ District Caucus
~ Leadership
~ Survival of the Chapter
To also include a more in-depth informative look at other must-know topics of which many new members are unaware.

But that’s not all. Plenty of time will be available to provide for camaraderie and networking amongst other DAV members from across the state. This will include a Meet and Greet Reception the evening of Friday, January 13th. On Saturday, January 14th, lunch will be provided in the hospitality room, cost included in the $15 registration – giving everyone more time to socialize and share with others.

To make this successful we really need your help! Fill out registration form for your chapter members who are planning to attend the conference using the enclosed form with payment and mail it back to Department Headquarters by December 5, 2022. That’s it! Prepayment of registration is not required but it is recommended to avoid lines. The list itself is most important in helping us to prepare for the possible number attending.

As always, we love to hear from you at Department Headquarters, so please do not hesitate to contact us.
