DALLAS – The Disable American Veterans (DAV) announced the cancellation of their national convention amid COVID-19 concerns. The 2020 DAV and Auxiliary National Convention was slated for Aug. 1 through Aug. 4 in Dallas.

The organization’s press release said the decision was made out of an abundance of caution for the health, safety and well-being of DAV members, families and guests.

This cancellation marks only the second time in the organization’s 100-year history in which this annual event was not held. In 1942, as the United States ramped up involvement in World War II, the event was canceled.

The DAV is scheduled to host its next national convention from July 24 to July 27, 2021, in Reno, Nev. said the organization.
