AFAP Conference Information and Call for Volunteers

The AFAP conference this year will be held Oct. 27-29.

The Army Family Action Plan (AFAP) provides Active and reserve Component Soldiers, Army Civilians, Family members, Survivors, and Retirees a voice in shaping their standards of living by identifying issues and concerns for Army Senior Leadership resolution.   AFAP is an effective program as ALL issues are reviewed and addressed through meetings held with the Garrison Commander. Issues are constantly worked until we identify a solution.  

 If you want to submit an issue, please complete the issue submission form (see attached) and drop it off either at the ACS front desk (we have an issue submission box) or at Barquist (there's a box there as well). There is also a box at Forest Glen in the command building 510. You can also go online to www.detrick.armymwr.com, select Community Support on the top tab, scroll down and select the AFAP logo for the electronic issue submission form. Issues can be completely anonymous; no need to include name and/or contact info.  

We are also in need of delegates to participate in the conference. A delegate is anyone who reviews the submitted issues and along with other delegates, comes up with recommendations for these issues. If you are an employee on Fort Detrick/Forest Glen and would like to participate in the conference as a delegate, then the conference will be considered your place of duty.

If you are not employed but are a volunteer and would like to participate as a delegate, you can count your participation as volunteer time.  

For more information, questions or concerns call 301-619-3171.
