Members frequently ask how to get coverage of a chapter event into Air Force Magazine. Here are the basics:

FUNDAMENTALS
The “AFA National Report” section in Air Force Magazine covers chapter activities.

The magazine point of contact for chapter news is Assistant Managing Editor Frances McKenney. Her direct telephone number is 703-247-5828. Her e-mail address is fmckenney@afa.org. Her mailing address is Air Force Magazine, 1501 Lee Highway, Arlington VA 22209-1190.

WHAT FIELD MEMBERS CAN DO
Give us basic, factual information about your event. Please don't
expend a great deal of effort on writing. Just provide the basics: Who? What? Where? When? Why? How? We’ll contact you for more details.

We’re looking for a specific and direct link to the AFA chapter, so clearly stating that connection will help us greatly.

PHOTO REQUIREMENTS
If you’re sending a photo of children, please let their parents know that the photo might appear in print or on the Web.

E-mail photos at the highest resolution possible, one at a time.

We prefer unposed, candid photos showing people in action--not posing for the camera.
