Welcome to the FAO Association

The Foreign Area Officer Association (FAOA) is the professional organization for active duty, reserve, retired, and former FAOs, Attachés and Security Cooperation officers, and other defense language and international affairs experts, as well as corporate supporters. FAOA is organized for educational, professional, fraternal, and social purposes, as well as promoting esprit-de-corps and networking among past and present FAOA members and the FAO, Attaché, and defense international affairs communities. FAOA publishes the peer-reviewed FAOA Journal of International Affairs, sponsors distinguished speaker events relevant to the FAO discipline, intelligence, and international affairs; conducts networking happy hours known as "FAOs on Tap" throughout the year; and has a scholarship program and FAOA Academic Awards program at all of the Professional Military Education schools and other defense and national level institutes (NPS, NDU, JFSC, NIU). FAOA also helps preserve the history and tradition of this critical career specialty, through our research program and support to the FAO Heritage Display and Hall of Fame at the Pentagon.
