  • Conduct workshops and seminars designed to inform delegates on legislative matters as well as the aims and goals of our Association

  • Conduct Chapter level training of all aspects of AFSA

  • Encourage all delegates to participate in all business meetings and social events.  All delegates should plan to participate fully in the workings of the association


Summit Theme:


This year’s theme is “AFSA Always has Your Six: Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow”.  The focus of the summit is both professional development seminars and conducting AFSA business.  This Division Summit is the one time of the year that all 21 Chapters, across a 6-state regional area, assemble for a common purpose, and participate in training and professional development seminars led by current Air Force Leadership.  Those that have attended in the past have overwhelmingly commented it was very beneficial.  There is plenty of time for official business but also some personal time to meet new members and renew friendships.  It is also a time to recognize and honor our annual award nominees and selectees that will compete later in the year at the International level.  Through AFSA Chapter training, fraternalism and cross talk with other members of AFSA, attendees should leave the summit inspired to achieve greater impact at their Chapter level, base and community.

Summit Information:

Attendance at the summit can be in funded status if worked through your local chapter and base leadership.  Last year’s Summit saw about 85% of active duty members in a TDY status on funded orders.  We are providing the details of this year’s summit so that potential attendees can start now to coordinate their attendance.  


The Summit Manager for this year is your Division 6 President, MSgt Joseph Tidwell and he has assembled an energetic team, most of which are the members of your Division 6 Executive Council.    It is the team’s goal to provide a growth experience that will leave you motivated and equipped to support retirees, military members, and their families.
