105th National Convention
July 21-25, 2018
Kansas City, Missouri

Join thousands of VFW and Auxiliary members at the Bartle Hall Kansas City Convention Center in July. Meet and share ideas with fellow members, vote on resolutions for changes to the National Bylaws, cheer on your Department during awards and attend seminars to get you prepared for the new Program Year.

Kansas City is home to VFW and VFW Auxiliary National Headquarters, the National World War I Museum, finger-licking barbecue, a vibrant jazz scene and more fountains than any city other than Rome. See all that Kansas City has to offer here.

Housing and registration are open and information will be posted as it becomes available.

Make plans to join us in the Paris of the Plains this July!
