Lunch Meeting


October 20, 2021

In line with the latest AFA and USAF guidance on the COVID-19 response, the October Chapter luncheon will be hybrid - you can attend virtually (using ZOOM) or attend in-person at the restaurant.  Our guest speaker will participate in person; his talk at the restaurant will be broadcast to all virtual attendees..   

Our guest speaker is Mr. Marlon Dubuisson, who is the District Director for Congressman Gerald E. Connolly, who represents Virginia's 11th Congressional District in the U.S. House of Representatives.  We have invited Rep Connolly's office to inform our members about on Federal employee issues, the District's Military Academy appointment program, and issues affecting Air Force veterans in Northern Virginia, The 11th District includes Fairfax County, Fairfax City, and the eastern portion of Prince William County.  In his role as District Director, Mr. Dubuisson oversees all district operations including community relations, outreach, and case work.  Additionally, he coordinates the Congressman's annual events, such as Service Academy Nominations, the Open Season Workshop, and the Congressional Art Competition.  Mr. Dubuisson has worked for Congressman Connolly since 2017 and resides in Lorton, VA.
