It’s time to start getting ready for this year’s National Convention in Springfield, Illinois. The Membership Department is in the process of closing February’s membership transactions and the membership year. Once this is completed, the number of delegates each state council and chapter is authorized to send to the Convention will be released. We expect to have this information available and in the mail by mid-March.

We will send a letter to each state council and chapter, showing the number of active members and the corresponding number of authorized delegates. If you believe there are discrepancies in the numbers, contact the VVA Membership Department. As a reminder, in accordance with the VVA Constitution, Article I, Section 6, a chapter with 25 or more active VVA members can send one delegate to the Convention. With 50 members or more, the chapter can send two delegates, and for every 50 additional members (100, 150, 200, etc.), another delegate can be sent. Each state council can send one delegate, plus an additional delegate for every 100 at-large members.

Once you have your numbers, you can begin the delegate registration process. This information will be covered in more detail in the next issue of The VVA Veteran, which will also include the registration form. You can also get instructions and procedures and download registration forms from our website,
No member-transfer requests will be processed starting April 19 until after the Convention.

You will find VVA and AVVA life membership applications in this issue of The VVA Veteran. These applications offer a chance to win a VVA or AVVA life membership. At the National Convention we will draw one VVA and one AVVA application received between March 1 and May 15. The lucky applicants will have their life membership fees refunded in full. VVA applicants must submit a copy of their DD-214 and meet eligibility requirements in order to be selected. If you have thought about life membership, now’s the time.
