Profile of the Colonel H.M. "Bud" West Chapter

As of July 31, 2013, there were 264 members of the "Bud West" Chapter, of which about 11 percent were Community Partners, 30 percent were life members, and 13 percent were AFROTC Cadets from Florida State University. About 83 percent of our members reside in Tallahassee, 16 percent reside in surrounding areas of Northwest Florida, and the remainder live in adjacent states.  We have a good mix of civilians from around the community and retired military, both officer and enlisted, mostly Air Force but several from other armed services.  We also have a few active Air Force, reservists, former service members, active Civil Air Patrol members and Community Partners dedicated to supporting and working to achieve the goals and objectives of the Air Force Association.

How can I get involved?

When the Air Force Association and the Aerospace Education Foundation (AEF) merged in 2006, all restrictions on membership in the association were removed. The AFA today is open to all - a totally inclusive organization.  As such, we are always seeking new members that share our beliefs that aerospace power provides for a strong national defense.  The easiest and friendliest way to get involved with the "Bud" West Chapter is to contact one of the officers listed in the above link. We always have a handful of applications and would happy to meet with you, tell you about the chapter, and answer any questions you may have. If you would prefer to quickly begin or renew your AFA membership, please follow the appropriate link below, and be sure to designate AFA Chapter 419, Colonel H.M. "Bud" West as your chapter affiliation.
