VIETNAM VETERANS OF AMERICA TO MAINTAIN OFFICES  IN WASHINGTON, D.C. AREA



Vietnam Veterans of America (VVA) National President George C. Duggins announced VVA's intentions of maintaining their offices in the Washington, D.C. region. 

Based upon a vote by the VVA's board of directors at their quarterly conference on Jan. 23, 1999, the majority of the attendees determined that costs in moving the offices would not produce appreciable savings.  Furthermore, by moving part of the office staff out of the Washington, D.C. area, effectiveness of the functions performed by staff members would be undermined.  A determining factor was difficulties experienced by other veterans service organizations when similar moves were made. 

On-going evaluations will be made to determine when the national offices will be moved to a new location since the existing rented spaces are not acceptable.  Currently, VVA intends to relocate in the National Capital Area based upon future decisions by its board of directors.  More information will be made available in the VVA Veteran as to the advantages and disadvantages of relocation.
