Prescott-Goldwater AFA Chapter
Chapter MEETING SATURDAY,17 NOVEmber 2018
Dear AFA Members, Partners, and Supporters,
My name is Caroline Jok, and I have the honor of serving of taking on the Chapter President position in the interim until we have elections. I am a first semester Graduate student at Embry-Riddle studying Security and Intelligence. I did my undergrad at George Washington University in our Nation’s Capital.
During my time in D.C. I worked on the Hill, at the National Defense University College of International Security Affairs, as a contractor for the Marine Corps, sat on the Air Force Association’s Nation’s Capital Chapter Executive Board, worked at AFA Headquarters – and so much more. Throughout all of this, Silver Wings and the AFA were the catalysts to my involvement in defense.
Recently, the Prescott-Goldwater Chapter has faced stagnation and a lack of member involvement. AFA has done so much for me, and the mission of Educating about, Advocating for, and Supporting Air Power and our communities is crucial, now more than ever as our Air Force, Department of Defense, and Country are facing a changing environment. So, our chapter is going to see changes as well, and we want you to come along!
You are invited to join us at our upcoming meeting:
17 November 2018
1100 – 1300
Haas Chapel, Bldg. 46
3700 Willow Creek Rd.
Prescott, Valley 86301
This will be a Brown Bag meeting, so feel free to bring your own lunch!
During this meeting we will hold official chapter elections to fill the Chapter Executive Board, hear from a guest speaker, talk about the new direction of the chapter, and swear in the new officers. We would love to see you there!
I am excited for the road that lies ahead! If you have any questions or to RSVP, I can be reached at 832.451.9828 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
