9. The 99th National Convention will be held in Reno, Nevada, July 21-25, 2012.

10. It was approved at National Convention that Section 1001-Uniform of the Bylaws be deleted; therefore, there is no official Ladies Auxiliary VFW uniform. The resolutions submitted at the National Convention for a uniform were tabled. The National President is to appoint a committee to find a suitable Auxiliary blue uniform to be voted on at the National Convention in Reno, Nevada. Until such time of this adoption, members may continue to wear the old Ladies Auxiliary blue uniform. Should they not have this uniform, a black suit (pants or skirt) with a white blouse will be acceptable. The new Ladies Auxiliary VFW logo pin may be purchased when available through the VFW Store and worn in place of the pocket badge and on the black suit.
