VFW State Convention

Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, this years State Convention at the Embassy Suites Downtown Des Moines has been cancelled. In an effort to comply with our State and National Bylaws, we will be holding a 1 day abbreviated Convention which will only consist of the outgoing Council of Administration (CoA) Meeting, Election and Installation of Department Officers, and an incoming CoA Meeting. The CoA will be required to attend  in person, and we need to have at least 10 Posts represented in person to have a quorum to conduct business and elections. Members who are unable to attend due to the risks associated with COVID-19 will be able to attend via a virtual meeting.

The One-Day Modified Convention will be held on June 6th, 2020 at  Acanthus Masonic Lodge located at 4133 Urbandale Avenue, Des Moines IA 50310, (Behind "Christopher's Restaurant" on the corner of Beaver Drive and Urbandale Avenue, 1 block from VFW Post 9127, and only a few blocks from the Department HQstarting at 9:00 AM.
