AFA Langley Chapter
Airpower Symposium | Salute to Team Langley
"Empowering the Combat Air Force for Tomorrow's Fight"
WE SUGGEST YOU BOOKMARK THIS PAGE FOR FUTURE REFERENCE

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Langley AFA Chapter is again proud to present our annual Airpower Symposium and Salute to Team Langley.  This year will be a combination of a virtual Zoom event for the unclassified portion and an in-person classified session where seating will be limited to one person per company due to COVID-19 protocols (exception is two people for a PLATINUM Sponsor).  Both events will provide an opportunity to hear from and engage with Air Combat Command leadership.  The Symposium is our chapter's primary annual fundraising event.  Proceeds enable us to provide Langley Airmen with quarterly/annual awards and banquets, grants and scholarships as well as supporting local STEM education opportunities such as Cyber Patriot programs and our annual Teachers of the Year awards.  While there are participation fees, and individuals are encouraged to attend, we would like to get as many industry partners as possible to consider covering these fees through funding one of our sponsor offerings.  See below for details on Sponsor Packages.
