You can also get the latest details for the DAV Auxiliary National Convention and other upcoming conferences.


The scheduled location of the 2021 DAV and Auxiliary National Convention—the Grand Sierra Resort and Casino in Reno, Nevada—has canceled the July 24–27 event due to the state’s COVID-19 restrictions for events and meetings. The convention will now take place July 31–August 3 (the Day of Inspiration will take place on Thursday, July 29) at the JW Marriott Tampa Water Street and the Tampa Marriott Water Street in Tampa, Florida.

GSR Cancelations:
Grand Sierra Resort will begin canceling reservations on March 22 and all reservations will be canceled no later than March 31. A refund will be issued within 7-10 business days from the date of canceling.
