Welcome to the Air Force Women Officers Associated page. AFWOA was formed in 1975 by a group of retired Air Force women officers who wished to preserve the friendships that they had made while on active service. Membership has now grown to over 1000, including many active duty women. Active duty, retired and separated women officers of the regular Air Force and its reserve components are invited to join AFWOA.

AFWOA's purpose is to foster comradeship through reunions, maintain ties between active and retired women officers, preserve the history and promote recognition of the role of military women, and lend support to women engaged in education and training programs. We sponsor the permanent Most Valuable Swimmer Award (Woman) at the Air Force Academy.

Reunions are held biannually in the United States. Members of the Reunion Committee and AFWOA Board of Directors serve as volunteers to organize these events.

AFWOA is recognized by the IRS and State of Texas as a non-profit, tax-exempt veterans' organization. Members' contributions and dues are the sole source of income and are greatly appreciated. Normal expenses include postage and printing costs associated with publication of the newsletters, membership roster and reunion announcements as well as telephone service which includes an 800 number and E-mail.

Our Members Only section contains a searchable member database and electronic copies of our newsletters.  You login to this section with your Username and Password in the Login Form in the right column.  Many members already have a Username and Password.  If you don't, members with an email address (this is required) may request a Username and Password via email to afwoa@afwoa.org Members may choose not to display street addresses, phone numbers, or email addresses in the online Members Only directory.  Send requests to have such information blocked to afwoa@afwoa.org.

AFWOA.org Has a New Look

Written by Linda Allen, Webmaster Friday, 23 July 2010 09:03

AFWOA is now using a free content management system called Joomla (www.joomla.org) for our website.  Joomla produces a professional looking website that is easy to update.

A few people may experience problems when trying to access links on our website.  If you use Internet Explorer and get a message that says "The address is not valid",  you are running in Compatibility View.  In IE8 click on "Page" in the toolbar in the upper right, then click on Compatibility View Settings.  Remove tdw.org from the list of websites running in Compatibility View.  The links should work okay then.

Access to the Members Only area of the website is now through the login form in the right column of the Front Page (home page).  During our transition, you can access the existing Members Only area by clicking on the "LoginMember.html" link.  If you are an AFWOA member and do not have a user name and password, send a request to the webmaster.
