On behalf of the FAO Association Board, we apologize for the inconvenience the re-arrangement of the program may have caused. However, we are appreciative of Lt Gen Ashley taking time out of his schedule to participate as our distinguished speaker through a virtual event. We are also thankful for all of those who participated virtually last September.
Several have reached out and we'd like to offer four options for reimbursement of your funds initially contributed for the onsite event at the Army Navy Country Club in Arlington, VA. Please make a selection from the options below and several Board members will work on your request as quickly as possible.
Again, thank you for your continued participation and support of the FAO Association, which, we just passed our 25th Foundational Anniversary! The accomplishments listed below since inception in 1995 would not be possible without our core membership base and Corporation sponsors:
