JWV IS GOING VIRTUAL!

The coronavirus may prevent us from gathering in Jacksonville, but it can’t stop us from getting together for our National Convention.  This year, the convention is coming to you.  August 23-27, JWV members will gather online to conduct business, hear from several speakers, and elect a new National Commander as we head into our 125th year.

You can join the fun online or on the phone – but first you need to register.  You can register online now or print out the registration form and send it to our National Headquarters.
