Our new convention site is in the center of the state so that all posts can send delegates and join in the celebration of a completed post year. Awards are presented, new officers elected, and we kick-start the 2013-14 year of service to our veterans and our community.
Convention 2012 had a special Hawaiian theme for the banquet. It was a sold out event and there was lots of fun for all. We are working hard at making each state convention a memorable experience that is enjoyable by all. Bring your family.
Enjoy shopping in nearby shopping centers or explore historic sites. Why not plan an extended weekend to enjoy the Triad area. Winston-Salem is nearby as is the historic Guilford Courthouse National Military Park. If you are a senior, be sure to get your National Park Service lifetime pass for just $10.
