Chapter 10 Resolutions
DAV is a resolution based organization, which means we can only support or oppose legislation that is part of our legislative agenda. This starts with resolutions from each DAV Chapter. Those approved by a chapter will then go to their respective DAV Department for adoption. Those adopted will go to the DAV National Convention for consideration.
Chapter 10 has been actively engaged in the resolution process for years and we have impacted issues in Virginia and nationally. We start the new resolution process in January and February each year. If you have any ideas for legislative issues, please let us know. All resolutions must conform with DAV's Statement of Policy which focuses on disabled veterans and their families.
