The ACA has nearly 4,000 members worldwide. In addition, we have eight chapters. They are: Cannon AFB, Carolina, Emerald Coast (Hurlburt Field), Kadena AB, Kirtland AFB, Mildenhall RAFB, the Rocky Mountain region, the Tampa Bay Area, and Washington D.C. To continue “bridging past to future”, there is a growing need to recruit new and invite previous members to rejoin our ranks.
Each chapter has it own Board of Directors and elected officials live in the immediate area. The benefits of belonging to a chapter are many and vary from person to person. Topping the list are: supporting local fundraisers that give back to your community; being involved in Air Commando activities close to home; and representing the ACA at events and ceremonies.
