Blinded veterans, their families, and other guests who have previously registered for the BVA 77th National Convention in Washington, DC, are invited to now register online for individual offsite activities throughout the week of August 22-27 (Monday-Saturday). Convention attendees can pick and choose from the various activities available.

In addition, BVA members who have not previously registered for the convention at all may still do so here (CLICK HERE) prior to registering for the individual activities, or by calling BVA National Headquarters at 202-371-8880. The deadline for the general registration is Thursday, July 28

The activities include a Monday Arlington area tour, a National Mall Monuments tour on Tuesday, an evening Dine Around near the convention hotel on Wednesday, a bowling and dinner activity on Thursday, and a post-convention Saturday morning kayaking activity.

Although a nominal $5 per person fee will be charged for each of the activities except the free Wednesday Dine Around, convention attendees will not pay the fees until they personally arrive at the Hyatt Regency Washington on Capitol Hill. No payments are requested or required at this time. The purpose of the individual registrations for these events several weeks in advance is to provide BVA with urgently needed headcounts to determine transportation needs and special accommodations such as wheelchairs and wheelchair lifts.

Please register for the individual activities as soon as possible here (CLICK HERE).
