One of the most unique and powerful privileges of AMVETS membership is participating in the policy-making process. During National Convention and National Executive Committee (NEC) Meetings the AMVETS agenda, legislative priorities, programs and membership issues are determined. Constitution & Bylaw Amendments (CBL) that are passed by the body at National Convention amend or add to the AMVETS National Constitution & Bylaws; Resolutions that are passed by the body at National Convention are part of AMVETS’ legislative agenda for two years.
Any member can propose a Resolution or a CBL Amendment with Department approval. Click here for a more detailed explanation.
