The Air Force Community Partnership (AFCP) program is offering a series of seminars on a range of topics to support installation and community leaders as they carry out efforts to form new partnerships.
The monthly brownbag series, which is open to Air Force personnel and community stakeholders, begins next week with a session on intergovernmental support agreements. Brownbags scheduled so far include:
- Intergovernmental Support Agreements 101 (July 27)
- Legal Aspects of How to Draft Successful Partnership Agreements (Aug. 24)
- Building and Completing Successful Business Case Analyses for Partnerships (Sept. 21)
- Morale, Welfare and Recreation: How Bases and Communities are Working Together to Provide Better Services (Oct. 26)
Future topics will include:
- Driving High-Return-on-Investment Partnerships: Examples from the AFCP Program
- Introduction to the AFCP Program
- Civil Engineering Partnerships: How These Partnerships are Changing the Way the Air Force Does Business
Since January 2013, the AFCP Program has inspired 53 installations and communities to partner across a wide range of functions. The 200 agreements that installations and their host communities have signed have generated $39 million in benefits for the Air Force and $24 million in community benefits, according to the Air Force.
