National Convention

September 14-15, 2019

The Air Force Association’s annual National Convention is an exciting opportunity for AFA members from around the country and abroad to come together and play a pivotal role in shaping our Association. As defined by AFA’s Constitution, the Association is governed by its National Convention body, which passes its authority to an elected Board of Directors for required actions between National Conventions. If you are interested in joining fellow AFA members as a delegate, please contact your State President for more information. You can search for your State President here

AFA's National Convention is the governing body of the Air Force Association. As a delegate, you will be voting on organizational changes and electing national officers.

To receive the special discounted hotel rates for delegates, you must first register as a delegate to the Convention. Please register as a delegate only if you have been selected by your AFA State President, as state delegations are coordinated through the State Presidents. If you have no state organization, please contact your Chapter or Region President.

Please make your reservations now to ensure you get the special delegate discounted rates. Reservations will be accepted on a first-in basis until the block is full or until noon on Monday, August 19, 2019, whichever comes first. To reserve your hotel room, you must first register for the Convention/Conference. At the end of the registration process, your internet browser will display a registration confirmation page. Click the "click here" link within the Hotel Reservation section that appears below your registration summary and then provide the appropriate information.

NOTE: Do not call the hotel directly; the method outlined here is the only avenue available for you to make your hotel reservation at this rate. Please also note that this rate can be extended only to convention delegates.

If you have any questions about your hotel reservations, please contact Amanda Grandel at

In addition to being the primary forum for conducting official AFA business, the National Convention offers exciting opportunities for members and guests to come together for networking, additional training, Congressional engagement, and social activities. A few highlights of the 2019 National Convention include:

  • Opportunities to meet and share best practices with other Field leaders from around the country
  • AFA Field Awards Dinner to recognize our exceptional volunteers and chapters
  • Opportunity to participate in the US Air Force Interfaith Worship Service at the National Cathedral with a special prelude by the Air Force Concert Band and Singing Sergeants
  • Training workshops for current and potential AFA Field Leaders

We look forward to seeing everyone!
