March 2-6, 2014 in Washington, D.C.
Since 1949, the 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 Commander-in-Chief testifies on Capitol Hill on behalf of of all veterans before the House and Senate Veterans Affairs committees.
Guest speakers are invited to address conference delegates and a legislative reception is held Wednesday evening.
Also at the event, the winners of the VFW Voice of Democracy and Patriot's Pen scholarship contests are announced. Each national winner reads his/her winning essay before conference delegates and are then presented with their winnings.
