Who We Are
Over the past five decades, the Air Force Sergeants Association has built a reputation as a stalwart advocate for Air Force enlisted members, past and present, and their families. AFSA represents its 110,000 members by advocating for their interests to America’s elected and military leaders. As a federally-chartered Veteran Service Organization, AFSA is able to lobby on Capitol Hill on behalf of its members. AFSA is organized with seven divisions across the U.S. and overseas; the heart of AFSA is its 134 chapters. Connect with a chapter near you.
Specifically focused on issues that affect enlisted Airmen and their families, AFSA regularly meets with members of Congress and Air Force senior leaders to advocate for fair and equitable benefits that matter to today’s Total Force Airmen and their families, and to our Veterans who have served proudly in the past. Pay raises, tuition assistance, healthcare, COLA adjustments, transition programs, care for survivors, and education benefits are just a few things on AFSA’s legislative scope. For a look at all of AFSA’s legislative priorities for the coming year, see here.
Numbers matter. The more members that AFSA represents, the more impact we can have together on Capitol Hill and beyond. In the current budget environment, military and veteran benefits are a target. AFSA is committed to voicing our membership’s desire to maintain the quality of life benefits they’ve earned through military service.
Fraternalism. Being part of an organization focused on elevating and advocating for the enlisted corps is fun. Banding together with fellow Airmen of today, learning from those of the past, and preparing those who carry the future is not only important, it’s enjoyable.
