Legislative Conference March 4-8, 2018
Voice of Democracy March 3-7, 2018
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.
Housing for the 2018 Legislative Conference is now open.
