Save the Date for the 2023 Conference! May 20-21

The Oregon Department of Veterans’ Affairs is excited to announce the return of the Oregon Women Veterans Conference which will once again be an in-person event that welcomes women veterans from all eras of military service and from every corner of the state.

The two-day conference will take place May 20-21, 2023 at the Salem Convention Center. Since 1998, this free biennial event has celebrated the contributions, diversity and strength of Oregon’s women veteran community, and is the largest gathering of women-identifying veterans in the state.

Women veterans make up one of the fastest-growing segments of the Oregon veteran community, with an estimated 25,000 women veterans living in the state today, representing nearly one-tenth of the overall veteran population.

The program will include inspirational speakers, informative seminars and breakout sessions, and opportunities to network with other women veterans and receive direct assistance in accessing earned benefits and other resources.

More information on this year’s in-person conference will be coming soon! For further information on women veteran resources, or questions, contact ODVA at or Jessica Bradley, ODVA Women Veterans’ Coordinator at 503-576-9603.
