DAV National Commander Testimonial Dinner

As you are aware, we recently made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 DAV and Auxiliary National Convention out of an abundance of caution for the safety of our members and staff, marking the second time in our organization’s history we have not hosted this annual event.

Per these guidelines, I will be staying on as national commander until the next election takes place at our convention in 2021.

With your health and wellbeing in mind, I have decided to postpone my commander’s testimonial dinner, originally scheduled for July 18, until sometime in 2021.

Registration costs for the event will be returned in full, and I look forward to hosting you at the new testimonial dinner when it once again becomes safe to do so.

For your continued safety, we encourage you to follow the instructions issued by the CDC, and to keep reaching out to your fellow department and chapter members as a way to stay socially connected while maintaining physical distance.

Be safe, and remember to take care of yourselves and each other.
