Mark your calendar! AFPAAA's next annual meeting will be held October 26 - 28 in Tampa, Florida. Annual Meeeting Coordinator Perry Nouis provided an update on plans for the meeting in the January 2023 edition of News & Notes. Here's what Perry had to say...
"Planning is well underway for the next Association Membership Meeting scheduled for Tampa, Florida. The dates for the meeting are October 26 - 28, 2023. The Annual Meeting Committee is in the process of evaluating hotels in the Tampa area to host us. We anticipate having an appropriate facility identified and contracted by the end of January. As soon as we have hotel information confirmed we will post a registration form on this website.
Current plans call for a typical meeting structure with an icebreaker/mixer the evening of Thursday, Oct. 26. A visit to MacDill AFB is being planned for Friday, Oct. 27. Saturday (Oct. 28) will feature membership business meetings and the traditional awards banquet in the evening.
A golf outing at Bay Palms Golf Complex will be planned for the morning of Thursday, Oct. 26. As with all planning in an uncertain world, plans are tentative and could change.
At this time, in addition to a visit to the 6th Air Refueling Wing, we’re planning a stop at HQ U.S. Central Command and potentially HQ U.S. Special Operations Command.
We’re going to shorten the day by a couple of hours in the afternoon to give members more time to take advantage of the many attractions in the Tampa area.
We advise members to check the AFPAAA website frequently as we will post a registration form, hotel information, a list of those planning to attend, and the itinerary as that information is confirmed and becomes available. We’re hoping for a great turnout as four-and-a-half years will have passed since we last met in Charleston. We’re going to make every effort to ensure those who attend have a wonderful time visiting Tampa."
