2023 VFW Legislative Conference

The 2023 VFW Legislative Conference will be held March 5-9, 2023. 

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 the VFW's current Commander-in-Chief testifies on Capitol Hill before the House and Senate Veterans' Affairs Committees on behalf of veterans.

Guest speakers are invited to address conference delegates, and since 1964, the VFW's Congressional Award has been presented annually to one sitting member of the House or Senate for their significant legislative contributions on behalf of those who have worn the uniform.

Also at the event, the national winners of the Voice of Democracy and Patriot's Pen scholarship contests are announced. Each winner reads their winning essay before conference delegates and are presented with their winnings.

Housing for the 2023 VFW Legislative Conference is now open! No paper form will be required this year, so all attendees will be able to make their reservations online here. Reservations are first come, first served, so make your reservations today!
