AFPAAA is a non-profit, veterans organization of past and present U.S. Air Force Public Affairs, Band, Visual Information/Combat Camera, and Broadcast professionals.
If that describes you, please Join Us.
We are committed to preserving the heritage and professionalism of the Public Affairs community, helping members transition into new jobs, and maintaining contact with friends and co-workers. We are more a fraternity than an association; a fraternity of over 500 men and women whose generations were defined by the conflicts they were involved in and the deployments they were sent on - World War II, Korea, the Cold War, Vietnam, Bosnia, Iraq, Afghanistan, and many other places around the globe - yet sharing a singular common experience.
A tax-exempt veterans organization under section 501(a) of the Internal Revenue Code, AFPAAA was first incorporated in Virginia in late 1993.
If you are now, or ever were, a member of the Public Affairs family, AFPAAA is here for you.

AFPAAA's Board of Directors has unanimously decided to postpone this year's Annual Meeting to 2022. The new dates will be September 29 to October 1, 2022.
Covid-19 uncertainties were the driving factor in the board's decision. “It was the best decision our board could make for all involved – our members, Air Force Material Command, the AF Museum, and the hotel,” said AFPAAA president and meeting coordinator Perry Nouis.
“Rescheduling to allow sufficient time for most people to be vaccinated and for things to return to as normal as possible across the country was the way to go,” he said.
More details about the postponement decision are available in the April News and Notes cover story and Perry's "From the President's Pen" letter.
