Last Saturday, AFSA Chapter 615 members and guests gathered together at Cullin Park on Barksdale Air Force Base to enjoy hot dogs, hamburgers and good fellowship. Check out the pictures by clicking here!
This morning I was given the opportunity to present a framed and signed shirt from none other then the 9th CMSAF Jim Binnicker. Chief Binnicker served the men and women of the Air Force in 1957 until 1990. He served as our 9th CMSAF from 1986-1990. He was credited with transitioning from the APR to the EPR system as well as developing the feedback form to enhance communication between a rater and ratee. After his retirement he served as the CEO of the Enlisted Village in Shalimar FL from 2000-2015. Your chapter 615 knows this memorabilia is proudly displayed in the right place at the Barksdale Airmen Leadership School. Thank you to the commandant MSgt Woods, presenting along with me VP (r)CMSgt Forman and awards trustee SMSgt Kasch. As well as every AFSA Chapter 615 member who make our work possible. Your chapter purchased this at your 2016 international convention through funds raised at our weekly bingo sessions. Together we are AFSA!
Christopher "Dex" Smith, TSgt, USAF
Good Afternoon AFSA Chapter 615,
We have just implemented a new form to allow users to request AFSA Chapter 615 attend local awards ceremonies and other events. Using this form, anyone can request a chapter representative to present awards, medals, etc., to local organizations such as JROTC units.
If you have an awards ceremony that you would like AFSA Chapter 615 to attend, please fill out the Awards Presentation Request Form here:
The Air Force Sergeants Association publishes this Update to provide you with end-of-year Recruiting and Retention results, and to congratulate those who worked diligently to build their AFSA.
The current edition, Volume 39 (Feb 2016), is available by clicking here:
AFSA Chapter 615 was recognized for TwinFLIER Club 2015 for recruiting or retaining 100+ members in the year. This accomplishment qualifies the chapter for one future convention registration. In total, our chapter recruited a total of 142 new members and retained 14 individuals. Good work!
