2011 Air & Space Highlights: Councils

Have you heard about the many types of councils that exist under AFA?

These councils prepare input to identify and prioritize quality of life and quality of service issues facing Air Force members to further help drive legislative action. The members work together to develop recommendations on policy issues which impact the Air Force community. At the 2011 Air & Space Conference and Technology  Expo, these councils will have an opportunity to gather and prepare to make advancements in their mission.

Here are five of our seven councils that take the ideas and issues that are important to you and your families directly to the Air Force and Congress.

Company Grade officers Council:
o  They represent officers in the rank of second lieutenant through captain.

Reserve Advisory Council:
o  They represent the different constituencies of the Air Force Reserve.

Air National Guard Council:
o  They represent the different constituencies of the Air National Guard.

Veterans/Retiree Council:
o  They represent this broad constituency and articulate their issues to the Air Force Association.

Enlisted Council:
o  The Enlisted Council is comprised of the 12 recipients of the Outstanding Airmen of the Year Award and senior enlisted members appointed by the Air Force to advise them. They develop policy recommendations that involve the quality of life and service issues that impact the enlisted force.
