The primary objectives of the Virginia Society include Heritage and Preservation; Public Education; Membership Growth; and Support. Heritage and Preservation include local and statewide projects, which perpetuate the memory and deeds of both the commissioned officers and elected and appointed officials who served the Confederacy and other activities, which celebrate Confederate History and its heroes. The Society is dedicated to an unwavering defense of the good name and motivation of those we represent. Public Education focuses upon study of the several causes for the War Between the States, its military, governmental, and societal consequences, and the necessity to present history factually in order to dispel myth and ignorance. Membership Growth is self-explanatory; some areas of the Commonwealth now are without active members or chapters, and the Virginia Society is dedicated to filling the gaps in its membership base.

Finally, the Virginia Society is committed to support its members and local chapters and to facilitate communications between members, chapters, and national offices. It also is dedicated to maintaining a viable and active membership through this web site, a statewide news-letter, and the participation of Society officers in chapter, local, state, and national events.
