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 25th Anniversary of the FAOA is approaching with much to look back on including the establishment of scholarship offerings and FAOA Academic Awards programs at all of the Professional Military Education schools like the National Defense University.
With much appreciation from senior Office of Secretary of Defense leadership, the FAOA finalized the FAO Heritage Pentagon exhibit and have modernized the most significant FAOA production, the FAOA Journal of International Affairs.
None of these accomplishments would be possible without your very thankful individual or Corporate sponsor contributions.
WE NEED YOUR HELP over the next six months 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:
Platinum Sustainment ($2,500) or Diamond Lifetime ($5,000):
The production and mailing costs for one hard-copy FAOA International Affairs Journal is over 6K. The FAOA would like to sustain at least one print per year. If you choose to support this option, at your discretion, we can add your individual name or company logo in all future FAOA journals on our website. Additional advertisement options are also available (See ad rates)
Monthly direct deposit (FAOA Legacy).
If there was an option to contribute from monthly bank account including company direct deposit, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
and arrangements can be established.
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.
