AFPAAA is a non-profit, veterans organization of past and present U.S. Air Force Public Affairs, Band, 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.

Due to the uncertainties surrounding the Covid-19 pandemic, AFPAAA's Board has decided to reschedule the next Annual Meeting. Previously scheduled for April 22-25, the new dates for the 2021 Annual Meeting in Dayton, Ohio will be October 7-10, 2021.
Other meeting plans remain the same. Visits to Wright-Patterson AFB, Air Force Material Command and the National Museum of the Air Force are still in the works, and our headquarters will remain the Dayton/Fairborn Holiday Inn. The special group rate for the hotel has not changed. You can make your room reservations using the hotel reservations link below.
Of course, when it comes to Covid-19, how "things" will work depends on some as yet unanswered questions. Stay tuned.
Get ready for the meeting in Dayton by checking out photos from previous annual meetings, or by viewing a great video of the National Museum of the Air Force below:

One of the highlights of our 2021 meeting will be a visit to the National Museum of the US Air Force. It may not be quite the same as being there in person, but check out the video below for a drone's eye preview. The video is best seen in full screen mode.
