Today, members from eight different organizations within The Military Coalition (TMC), including Co-Chairs from both the MilPers-Commissaries as well as the MWR-Milcon committees, had the chance to meet with Mr. Mike Immler, Deputy Director of the Army & Air Force Exchange Service (AAFES).
The panel had a deliberate discussion on the Defense Commissary Agency (DeCA), its appropriated funding and the need to find efficiencies on AAFES. Aside from similar business concepts and others discussed at the meeting, Immler was kind enough to share data from AAFES FY 2014 receipts. Aside from some pretty impressive numbers, the information that was presented provided a more in depth understanding resale issues within DoD, especially when you consider what follows can be impacted by Commissary developments (funding, efficiencies, etc.)
This informative luncheon was one of many AFSA HQ plans to host in the near future to shed light on the work being done behind closed to doors.
