Recently, DAV received the 2024 Congressional calendar and learned that Congress will not be in session during the dates of our normally scheduled mid-winter conference, which was scheduled to take place Feb. 25-28, 2024. Therefore, the DAV National 2024 Mid-Winter Conference has been rescheduled for March 7-9. While the new dates are an unprecedented break from the event’s traditional week after Presidents Day, moving our most highly visible demonstration of DAV’s dedicated advocacy will ensure you, our dedicated members and supporters, are able to meet with your elected officials face-to-face while Congress is in session.

The conference will still take place at the Crystal Gateway Marriott and include our national commander’s testimony to a joint session of the House and Senate Veterans Affairs Committees on Thursday, March 7 in the Senate Dirksen Building in room SD-G50. Our opening session will take place later that day at the Crystal Gateway Marriott with various other normally scheduled workshops taking place in the days following, including our National Executive Committee and Board of Directors meetings. Please review the posted schedule for more details.

Please note that the original room block at the Crystal Gateway Marriott has been deactivated. If you made a reservation under the February dates those reservations have been cancelled and a new reservation will need to be made in the active room block reflecting the new dates. Due to hotel availability around the new dates, rooms are not available earlier than March 6 and after March 11 at the DAV rate.
