Legislative Awareness Week
Awareness implies that one has knowledge of something through alertness, in observing what one sees, hears, feels, etc. Therefore, legislative awareness is being informed and understanding how legislative issues affect us. Since 1984, AFSA’s Legislative Awareness Week program has increased member involvement in the legislative process and helped establish this organization as each community's leading advocate for enlisted issues.
Many chapters have outstanding legislative programs that help attract and retain active, enthusiastic members. Most important, these programs truly make a difference in attaining quality-of-life improvements for our members.
The tools in this section are designed to assist chapters in conducting their Legislative Awareness Week activities. Whether providing information at an information booth, conducting a special dinner or open house, or managing a letter-writing campaign--this is your opportunity to advocate and tell the public what we have been doing to help take care of enlisted members and their families.
