Following an informal discussion between a small group of FAOs in the mid-90's, the FAO Association (FAOA) was officially incorporated with the Commonwealth of Virginia in 1995. After 20 years, the FAOA remains a chartered organization -- established for military and civilian professionals who are dedicated to promoting esprit-de-corps and networking among past and present FAOA members and the FAO, Attaché, and other international affairs communities.
The FAOA was thankful to host (Ret.) US Army LTG Bob Ashley as our distinguished speaker for the 25th Anniversary virtual forum in 2021.
LTG Ashley reminded us to recall and memorialize our significant milestones. Some of these include:
The FAOA also fulfilled two Charter goals:
None of these accomplishments would be possible without your very thankful individual or Corporate sponsor contributions and it is our desired goal to re-group for an on-site 25th Anniversary celebration in 2022.
WE NEED YOUR HELP over the next year to continue the legacy and foundation of the FAOA for another 20 years. Along with the existing Member/Corporate sponsor level options, FAOA is asking for your additional considered support, in the following ways:
The FAOA Board is very thankful for past contributions and generous support -- you have made the FAOA what it is today. To continue, over the next month, due to new website service contract terms, you will received an additional email and we will be phasing out non-paid or inactive memberships to reduce operating costs -- so it is very important, if you'd like to remain a member and be included in our FAOA email list for announcements and other benefits, this will now include a $10 membership fee. We also ask that if you are active due paying member, you stay current on your membership renewal.
