The Event of the Summer

DAV and Auxiliary members from every state will converge on one of the nation’s most visited cities for the 92nd DAV and Auxiliary National Convention, Aug. 10–13.

Orlando is a perfect convention location to bring the whole family, so please consider coming a few days early or staying after the convention to enjoy all it has to offer.
The convention itself features a full agenda, as members will elect national officers and adopt resolutions, setting DAV’s legislative agenda for the coming year.

The annual meeting will be held at the Hilton Orlando, an upscale, resort-style hotel. The venue and the city have the perfect mixture of world-class amenities and unique leisure opportunities.

The hotel offers seven dining establishments on the property, and it is convenient to everything the city has to offer, including world-class art, theater, museums, shopping and dining. Pointe Orlando, Sand Lake Road, SeaWorld Orlando, Universal Orlando and the Walt Disney World Resort theme parks are all just minutes away.

The hotel boasts a magnificent resort pool, a giant waterslide, fountain, quiet pool and whirlpool, plus a winding lazy river. There are basketball, tennis, volleyball and bocce ball courts.

Run the quarter-mile jogging track. Rejuvenate in the fitness center. Then, take advantage of a full-service spa.
