AFA Reserve Council needs members

WASHINGTON (AFPN) -- Active Guard and Reserve members, unit reservists and individual mobilization augmentees in any Air Force specialty and pay grade have until January to apply for membership on the Air Force Association Reserve Council.

Council members serve for two years and develop AFA policy recommendations on quality of life, equipment modernization and military construction issues affecting Air Force Reserve Command and reservists. Their responsibilities include soliciting concerns, such as pay, benefit and training issues from their constituency for submission to the council.

The council meets four times a year, usually in February, May, September and December, often in conjunction with AFA Symposium events, so members may be required to wear service dress and mess dress uniforms for certain functions. Reservists attend these meetings on orders, and the unit or agency of assignment is responsible for paying for the temporary-duty trips.

Interested people may apply through their wing commander, or equivalent, with a letter of endorsement indicating the applicant is available to perform duties. The letter needs to contain the following statement: "I understand the (unit of assignment for AGRs and unit reservists) or (major command for IMAs) is responsible for funding all TDYs required for membership on this council."

Other requirements are:

-- A cover letter from the member;

-- A resume of military and civilian experience;

-- Copies of the last five performance reports;

-- A current personnel data report; and

-- A full-length, three-quarter-turn pose photo in service dress uniform. The photo may be a color or black-and-white print, or a Polaroid.

Applications should be mailed to Chief Master Sgt. Troy McIntosh, 12313 Manchester Way, Woodbridge, Va. 22192 and must arrive by Jan. 31. Applicants will learn in March if they have or have not been selected.

For more information, contact McIntosh at DSN 225-9442 or (703) 695-9442. (Courtesy of AFRC News Service)
