The Membership Committee is comprised of volunteers from Chapters across Virginia who are appointed by the Department Commander for a one year term.

  The Committee is responsible for the oversight of recruiting and retention of members throughout the Department, with a goal for all Chapters and the Department to meet its Life Membership recruiting goal each Recruiting Year (1 July - 30 June). The Committee works closely with Chapter membership committees to develop recruiting plans and goals, and to inform potential members of the benefits of DAV membership.
