Veterans For Peace Annual Business Meeting

This year's online convention will also include our annual Business Meeting! As this will be our first on-line business meeting, we are working hard to develop a process that works best keeping in mind our desires for openness, transparency, and democracy. 

VFP’s Board of Directors has drafted an agenda and a guideline for this year’s Business Meeting.  (Posted on our website here)  Please keep in mind that all of the previous guidelines were written to guide the process of in-person meetings.  We are trying our best to accommodate these guidelines for an on-line meeting.  There will be a learning curve, and this experience will inform our policies and procedures for future business meetings.

All members are encouraged to register for this year's business meeting, which is separate from our online convention. Registration for the business meeting is FREE. 

Members must be current in their dues to participate. If you wish to update your dues and attend the business meeting please renew your membership BEFORE August 5th. (Renew your dues!). 

If you are a current member and have not received an email with an invitation to register for the Business Meeting, please email convention@veteransforpeace.org
