Denver, Colorado, will serve as the site of the 94th Disabled American Veterans (DAV) National Convention. Drawn by the area’s natural beauty and cultural highlights, representatives from DAV offices all over the United States will converge on the Mile High City in August to discuss major issues of interest to the nation’s disabled vets.
The four-day event will include a number of meetings, talks, and seminars addressing a range of topics that concern veterans. The convention also provides a forum for national leadership to report to local and state-level chapters and to conduct organizational business.
This year’s schedule has yet to be finalized. DAV National Conventions in recent years, however, have included a strong focus on supporting federal legislation and initiatives that benefit vets, especially with regard to Department of Veterans Affairs health care funding. Other past topics of interest have included employment of injured service members, women veterans’ issues, and recognition of influential members and contributors.
This year’s convention will be held August 8-11 at the Sheraton Hotel in downtown Denver.
